A Few Ideas for Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day, 2012

If you’re looking for ideas for getting out on Mother’s Day, we have a few suggestions…

Not up for breakfast in bed, then head out for breakfast or brunch.  We asked our readers for family friendly restaurant recommendations for Mother’s Day and they had several to offer. Check out Mother’s Day Brunch to see their suggestions… and add one of your own.

After breakfast/brunch, celebrate Mother’s Day by taking her to one of the many gorgeous gardens dotted throughout Western Massachusetts including the Bridge of Flower in Shelburne Falls, one of the Commonwealth’s most unusual and enchanting “gardens” is found in Franklin County.  Read our post The Art of Great Gardens in Western MA for a list of recommended public gardens in the region.

If you’re looking for something a little more scheduled, Old Sturbridge Village is offering free admission for moms on Mother’s Day. Families  can learn about 19th century life, including special programs focusing on the role of mothers (including a dinner preparation demonstration and a talk on 19th century motherhood).

And if Mother’s Day is more about making the littlest ones happy, moms ride for free on the trains at both Look Park in Florence and Forest Park Zoo in Longmeadow.
