Believe it or not, my 19 Y/O daughter and I try to do a weekend getaway (we call it a RUNAWAY) every year just to re-connect with each other. Best one yet: Sioux Falls, So. Dak. where we went hot air ballooning and on a tour of the hot air/cold air/inflatable balloon factory there (but I had a special "in" there; I don't know how many people get to do that).
Another favorite was Duluth, Mn. where we found some amazing antique stores and thoroughly enjoyed their railroad museum with their dining cars' displays of different place settings and dishes.
Neither of those places would be very suitable for the month of November, though.
I understand that a lot of older people love Bramson, Mo.
The main thing that you need to do is think about what both your Mom and you REALLY enjoy doing together and do something that you both like. It wouldn't do to take her to, say, a country western music concert if she HATES country western music! Same goes for a cruise if she'd love it but you get seasick! Find something that you both would love.
Good luck and have fun!
