Surprising Mom with a trip to Orlando this year? Check out six ways to celebrate Mother’s Day in Central Florida. No matter what Mom likes, Orlando offers a wide range of things to do that she is bound to love.
Smell the Roses
May is an excellent time to visit the gardens in Orlando as roses, hibiscus, gardenia, crepe myrtles, and many more will be in full bloom. If you are looking for something in the area, visit Leu Gardens in downtown Orlando. A bit further out are the Bok Tower gardens, home to a 250-acre garden and a singing tower carillon. Both gardens offer free admission for moms on Mother’s Day.
Visit the Theme Parks
Treat Mom to a day at the theme parks. Whether Mom likes roller coasters or musical performances, Star Wars or Harry Potter, Orlando has the perfect park for her. Make the day even more special with a behind-the-scenes tour, animal encounter experience, or fireworks viewing party.
Does Mom like to shop? Well, there’s no better place for her to enjoying some shopping than in Orlando. Discount designer outlets offer brand name bargains close to your hotel while the Millenia Mall features trendy, upscale brands. If Mom prefers boutiques and local artisan shops, visit the East End Market on Corrine Drive which has everything from vegetarian food to home décor.
Enjoy free admission for the whole family at the Mennello Art Museum on Sunday, May 12. Mom and the kids will enjoy a hands-on art project as well as a docent tour of the museum. Other museums Mom will want to visit in Orlando are the Orlando Museum of Art (just across the street from Mennello) and the Morse Museum in Winter Park.
Relax at a Wine Tasting
Mom will appreciate a relaxing afternoon of wine tasting, food, and live music at Lakeridge Winery. Nestled in the hills of Clermont, Florida, Lakeridge Winery is Florida’s largest premium winery with over 80 acres of vineyards. The festival which happens to fall on Mother’s Day weekend includes jazz music all afternoon, a tour of the winery, and plenty of wine and cheese tastings.
