Moms need a vacation too! Welcome to the age of the Momcation, where mothers across the globe are venturing out for mini solo getaways of their own. Not only do these trips allow some away time from their partner and kids, but they provide the opportunity for moms to truly relax, recharge, focus on themselves and break out of their comfort zones.
While some moms choose to venture out on exotic excursions in other countries, others opt for more of a “staycation” momcation or planning a getaway closer to home. Keep reading to discover how to have the ultimate Momcation at Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City!
Step one, treat yourself to some quality “me-time” with a world-class spa treatment from Exhale Spa + Bathhouse! Ocean’s adult-only spa provides therapeutic, results-oriented body and skin care services designed to promote ultimate inner and outer wellbeing. All treatments include access to Exhale’s Zen bathhouse, which features amenities like a Himalayan Salt Grotto, jetted pools, Jacuzzis, and a steam room and sauna.
Alternatively, if you’re only interested in unwinding at the bathhouse, a day pass can be purchased to enjoy its many offerings from dawn to dusk. Hotel guests can purchase an all-access day pass for $55, and non-guests can grab theirs for $70.
Steps away from Exhale Spa + Bathhouse is Atlantic City’s only indoor/outdoor pool, the renowned Eclipse Pool. Mom, if you are a hotel guest, you can take a dip into this pool any time of year as it is heated to adapt to the region’s climate.
Next, shake up your look with a premium cut and color at Bangz Salon and Blow Dry Lounge. This state-of-the-art salon is not just an amenity, but a statement! Located on the casino level, Bangz specializes in every aspect of hair, nails and makeup, and their knowledgeable team of stylists will help you create the exact look you desire. Trust us, no Ocean Momcation is complete without a transformation at Bangz!
Don’t just stop there, visit the Shops at the Row for the best solo shopping spree of your life (if we do say so ourselves). Stop into fashion boutique Renée for an array of women’s clothing, shoes, handbags and jewelry from around the world. Next, hop over to Bergio & Time After Time to accessorize with fine jewelry and watches from the nation’s biggest brand names.
Is surfer more your style? Flying Point Surf Shop has all your beachy basics, including clothing, jewelry and handbags. Lastly, if you’re looking to win mom-of-the-year, bring the kids back the perfect souvenir, stop by Hooligans, Ocean’s colorful and fun fashion and accessory store for children.
