Start a New Mother’s Day Tradition! 3 Ways to Enjoy Atlanta With Your Mom

Do you know what you’re getting your mom for Mother’s Day? You could choose old standbys like flowers, chocolates, or a thoughtful card, but in our view, one of the best gifts you can give your mom is the gift of your time. This Mother’s Day, try spending the day together in Atlanta! If you’re stumped for activities, one of these three options could be just the ticket. GET YOUR BRUNCH ON Brunch is as much of a Mother’s Day tradition as a card or bouquet, but it’s a level up because you get a seat at the table! In these uncertain times, many restaurants now offer takeout or home delivery, so you can still support local business. You can even make brunch yourself! If you aren’t sure where to begin, check out for over 50 delicious brunch recipes to try. You may even begin a new Mother's Day brunch tradition with this one. MEET UP WITH MOTHER NATURE It might not be a traditional, but taking an easy hike through the beautiful scenery outside of Atlanta can be a great way to bond with your mom. Enjoy plenty of trails near the city for beginners, like the 2-mile Arabia Mountain Mile Rock and Forest Loop, which winds through forests and granite expanses to a small lake. Another option would be to take a daytrip to Red Top Mountain Iron Hill Trail an hour out of town, where you and your mom can meander along the lakeshore and enjoy a picnic lunch with a view. If your mom is an expert hiker, try to find a new trail to tackle together!

MAKE SOMETHING TOGETHER Think back to when you were a kid. Did you and your mom draw, cook, or do craft projects together? If you did, then consider leveraging that nostalgia into the perfect gift. Put an adult spin on the memories and spend time together scrapbooking, painting, or otherwise crafting. You could also try surprising her by inviting her to your place to bake a cake or test out her mother’s pot roast recipe. If you spring for matching aprons, you might just make her year.
