Things To Do For Mother's Day in Southern Alberta
For those who need a reminder: mark your calendars for Mother’s Day on May 8th. Instead of buying gifts that will only last for a few days, this Mother’s Day, give her your time and have an experience together! We have come up with some ideas based on the type of day Mom would enjoy best. Get outside and interact with history, walk where dinosaurs once roamed, or tour beautiful gardens. Just know that ultimately the activity you choose to do doesn’t matter, because the experience and memories that will be created will make her year. Just remember to bookmark this post so that you have ideas for next year as well. Once that bar is set, you can’t go back to buying flowers and chocolate.
Walk with Nature
For those nature enthusiast moms who enjoy hiking, take a walk with nature this Mother’s Day and head down to Waterton Lakes National Park or Dinosaur Provincial Park! Let the magical landscape of Dinosaur Provincial Park transport you back to a time when dinosaurs roamed. Or have a more intimate experience during a peaceful hike up to Bears Hump in Waterton Lakes National Park.
Culture and Quiet
Still include flowers this Mother’s Day but have them while experiencing a sanctuary of peace and beauty in the famous Beaulieu Gardens located at Lougheed House. For the Moms that love a good shopping excursion try antiquing in Nanton, AB; scour a diverse collection of merchants and galleries while touring historic Nanton streets. Or head to Medalta in the Historic Clay District and learn all about the fascinating history of the clay industry in Medicine Hat.
Venture to the sacred landscape of Writing-on-Stone/Áísínai'pi National Historic Site to trek through the unique hoodoos, and witness the largest concentration of First Nation rock art (petroglyphs and pictographs) on the great plains of North America.
