Best Places to Take Mom on Mother’s Day in Albany – Our Top Five
Mother's Day 5K
Plenty of moms are runners and a 5k is a great way to spend the early morning of Mother's Day doing something she loves. There are several of them in the area including Clifton Park and Saratoga.
Dutch Apple Cruise on The Hudson
My mom has gone on a Dutch Apple cruise with me in the past and she absolutely loved it. There are two cruises on Mother's Day but the noon cruise is sold out. As of today (5/6/2011) there are still spots available on the 5P cruise.
Brunch at The Desmond
Anyone who has been to The Desmond for a wedding, conference, or any other event knows how wonderfully elegant an experience it is. Mom deserves to be pampered and not only is The Desmond a special treat, it's also affordable.
Mother's Day Northeast Art & Craft Show
My mom loves crafts - lives for them. I always hated to be dragged along as a kid and teenager so it makes it even more special for your mom if you actually ask to take her, of your own free will.
Tulip Fest is a long standing tradition in Albany for Mother's Day - and if you've somehow never been then you are completely missing a wonder experience. Some of the tulip bulbs are hundreds of years old and you'll find over 200,000 tulips to look at. Plus mom will love it.
