Make Mother’s Day Plans – The Pittsburgh Way!


May has arrived and it is officially time to trade in those April showers for Mother’s Day flowers and Memorial Day fun! You’ve still got plenty of time to plan your end-of-the-month BBQ, but you're running out of time to make sure that Mom’s day is a special one.

Luckily, Pittsburgh has  plenty to offer when it comes to showering Mom with the appreciation she deserves. From taking her to brunch to an excursion at the zoo, the city has something for every mom out there!

Here are a few Pittsburgh ways to make Mom’s day this Mother’s Day:

Phipps Conservatory

Many people buy their mom flowers on Mother’s Day. Thanks to Pittsburgh’s Phipps Conservatory, you can show your mom more than just a beautiful bouquet! Nestled in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood, this botanical garden even includes a butterfly forest.

Mother’s Day Wine Walk

She’s done her fair share of listening to you whine, so pour her a glass or two this Mother’s Day! Jokes aside, moms are invited to take over Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood on Saturday, May 13th.  The popular Mother’s Day Wine Walk is a self-guided wine-tasting tour that Mom is sure to love!

Mother’s Day High Tea

If wine is not your mom’s cup of tea, then treat her to something that is! Arnold’s Tea in Pittsburgh is serving Mother’s Day High Tea on Sunday, May 14th. From scones to sandwiches and more, this is one sweet treat for Mom!

Love is a Battlefield: Mother’s Day Special

Nothing says love like a little murder mystery! Treat Mom to a delicious dinner buffet at Pittsburgh’s Gaetano’s Banquet Center & Restaurant. While she dines, she’ll be dazzled by a comedic murder mystery production!

Gateway Clipper Fleet

Set sail with Mom for a two-hour Pittsburgh tour aboard the Gateway Clipper Fleet! With amazing brunch, lunch and dinner cruises, you can show Mom the city’s beauty from the three rivers that make it so unique!

Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium

Mom and all of her little monkeys are welcome at the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium this Mother’s Day. What makes this wild trip so special? Mom gets in free when she’s accompanied by her kids!

Mother’s Day 5K 2017

Show Mom that you would run to the ends of the earth for her – or at least 5K! This virtual race allows you to complete a 5K at your own pace, anytime during the month of May! A portion of registration proceeds go toward a charity and you can even get Mom a medal!

Fiddlesticks Family Concert

Give Mom a day that truly will be music to hear ears! The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra is presenting music from around the world in the Fiddlesticks Family Concert. This show is perfect for Mom and even the littlest of her children!

Nemacolin Woodlands Resort

Want Mom to truly relax this Mother’s Day? Send her to a weekend away at Pittsburgh’s Nemacolin Woodlands Resort! She’ll find everything from family crafts to wine tastings to bountiful buffets and – of course – spa services!

How is that for giving Mom a real taste of Pittsburgh?! Really impress her this year and schedule your Mother’s Day plans in Pittsburgh today. Oh – and, don’t forget those flowers!
