Things To Do In & Around Clifton Park 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 Virtual Albany Tulip Festival


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Albany Tulip Festival has been reimagined as a virtual celebration that will take place throughout the entire month of May (instead of just Mother's Day weekend). Visit the event listing for details on virtual tulip garden tours, music, and more. We look forward to Albany Tulip Festival returning as an in-person event in 2022.

Book a Local Wine Tasting

Ranches in the Lake George area offer one of the most unique and fun experiences in May - horseback rides on trails. Drive north of Clifton Park with the whole family and embark on a peaceful horseback ride with scenic views.
