On the second Sunday in May every year, Canada and America celebrate Mother’s Day. This year this amazing day falls on May 10th. It’s the one day of the year when we can’t spoil our mothers and grandmothers enough. And if you take her to Niagara Falls for the special occasion, you’ll be spoilt for choice on how to indulge.
Visit Natural Wonders
For a relaxed time out with the perfect backdrop for a celebratory day, the heart of Niagara Falls is the Queen Victoria Park – take Mom along the river with the landmark waterfalls front and centre as you stop and admire the various floral gardens with seasonal touches. If you have the transport available, also consider taking her northward to the Botanical Gardens just outside of town as well, the perfect site for a picnic, and stop off at other nature-based attractions like the butterfly house along the way.
If Mom’s fancy is to see the falls up close, be sure to book a couple of tickets on the Hornblower Cruise. This state-of-the-art ferry takes thrill-seekers right to the base of Niagara Falls. With weather permitting, an evening booking will also treat her to a fireworks display over the waterfalls and the city skyline while she’s on the water.
Visit an Amazing Restaurant
And no Mother’s Day is complete without a meal fit for a queen, and no matter what her tastes are the possibilities are limitless. The Milestones on the Falls Restaurant at the Marriott on the Falls in the heart of town has a diverse menu with classic and modern Australian meals, with a wide variety of cocktails and wines.
Take a Wine Tour
And if your mother is the type to seek out her own tastes, what better way to indulge her than to give her that very opportunity. Niagara wine tours start at $79 per adult through Magnificent Tours for a 4-hour coach ride around the Niagara region, visiting four premier estates for tours and tastings. With world-renowned brands like Inniskillin Estate on the list, it’s a fantastic way to spend the day.
With one day set aside for reminding Mom and Grandma how much we care, Niagara Falls can be a great backdrop to an unforgettable day. Plan ahead and make it the perfect day for her.
