Top Things to Do in the Clifton Park Area For Mother's Day

Whether it's one-on-one time or with the whole family, spend the day having fun in Clifton Park with the mom in your life! From picnics to attractions and day trips, there are a variety of things to do to celebrate Mother's Day.

Plan an Outdoor Adventure at a Nearby Park or Preserve

When was the last time you took a walk or visited a park with your mom? Enjoy the amazing spring weather in addition to Mother's Day by heading out to a park or trail together. Make sure to bring everything you need, including food and drinks. If the park has a picnic area, then you can have lunch outdoors too!

Explore the Region's Beautiful Waterways

Hiking isn't the only outdoor activity you can do this spring. Paddling and rafting are both extremely popular in the region, and many watersports companies open for the season by Mother's Day, including Lake Lonely Watersports in Saratoga Springs. You can have a peaceful outing in a kayak, or an extreme adventure rafting on a river in the southern Adirondacks.

Experience the Albany Tulip Festival

The annual Albany Tulip Festival will return in 2022 as an in-person celebration on May 7-8 in Albany's Washington Park. Tulip Festival is a highlight of Mother's Day weekend in the Capital Region, and you and your mom can enjoy live music, vendors, food, and more. See the event listing for more details.

Book a Local Wine Tasting

Taste what local wineries are serving up! Learn more about the wine-making process and find a new favorite while you're there. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the great flavors you'll come across during a wine tasting. Be sure to book ahead of time to ensure a spot.
