Want to do something special for mom this Mother’s Day but not sure just what? Shake up your usual Mother’s Day breakfast-in-bed and venture out in your car to one of these great Mother’s Day activities taking place in your Northeast Wisconsin backyard.
1. Whistlers Knoll Vineyard, Hortonville, WI
Whistlers Knoll is a beautiful vineyard and event venue located in Hortonville. Not only do they make some fantastic wine, but they also host public events and workshops. Take mom here for a Mother’s Day brunch on Sunday, May 13, or send her to one of their Wine Down happy hours, or the flower container workshop in June.
2. Green Bay Botanical Gardens, Green Bay, WI
Now that winter is finally over in Northeast Wisconsin, spring is starting to come to life. The Green Bay Botanical Gardens are a great place to take any mom that appreciates the beauty of flowers. With various trails that showcase many different types of plants, this is a great place to spend Mother’s Day outside. Bonus: moms get free admission on Sunday, May 13.
3. Mulberry Lane Farm, Hilbert, WI
Mulberry Lane Farm in Hilbert is the perfect place for a picnic lunch and a day full of family fun if mom is an animal lover. Snuggle kittens, milk cows, feed sheep and goats, or catch a hayride around the farm. Even better, moms get free admission with the purchase of one other general admission pass on Mother’s Day.
4. Fire Escape, Oshkosh, WI
Does mom love arts and crafts? If so, Fire Escape in Oshkosh is a great place to spend Mother’s Day. Maybe it’s a new vase, a serving tray, or even a sign for above the fireplace … paint your own pottery, board sign, or canvas, and give mom the gift of memories and handmade home décor!
