Things to Do with Mom on Mother's Day
Looking for a little Mother's Day inspiration? Here is a list of five special things you can do in and around Eugene with your mom.
1. Take Her Out on the River
Plunge into the spray of the McKenzie River on a wild, or mild (your choice), water tour. Enjoy the beauty of the Cascade mountains in spring and feel the exhilaration of charging the rapids. Guides make it easy, providing equipment, guiding the rafts and pointing out wildlife and nature along the way.
2. Go on a Picnic
3. Taste Wine in Oregon Wine Country
Take a beautiful drive across the South Willamette Valley, stopping to enjoy the wineries, visit historic covered bridges and take in the countryside. Make the journey even more special with a private wine tasting! As wineries have limited services due to pandemic protocols, you might find that VIP arrangements are the perfect solution. Some tastings, like Pfeiffer's Pinot Clinic, are now available virtually.
4. Cheer Her On
So maybe food, flowers and wine isn't your mother's cup of tea... How about running in a 5K? Support your track mom on her goal in a virtual race. Many marathons and race events have gone virtual, making it easy to set fitness goals and complete them on your own time.
5. Book Her a Hotel Getaway
She has more than earned a vacation! Treat your mother to a night or two at a local hotel. Discover how much fun it can be playing tourist in your hometown! Bring the family and reserve a spot at the hotel pool or order dinner in, and put watch a good movie. Just being in a different setting makes it special.
As you strive to honor your mother this year, remember to ask her what she wants most of all. And if all she wants for Mother's Day is a little quiet time by herself, there are plenty of things to do around Eugene to keep the family busy while she enjoys solitary serenity.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
