Mother's Day in The Mountains

Don't forget: Mother's Day is this weekend on Sunday! Mother's Day is a great opportunity to spend some time showing appreciation for your Mother, or Mother-Figure. Moms do so much for all of us, so it's important to give back every opportunity that we have. You never know how much time you have with your Mom, so make the most of it and treat her to some quality one-on-one time. 

Not sure what to do with Mom this Mother's Day? We recommend getting out the city for a fun day in the mountains! Here are some of our mountain getaway recommendations:

1). Drinks for the Road: Kick off your road trip with Mom by picking up a drink from your favourite local cafe! There are tons of independent coffee shops in Calgary, such as Monogram, Good Trade Co, Cadence Coffee and more. Get your drinks in to-go cups and hit the open road, the weather is set to be beautiful this weekend!

2). Rocky Mountain Bagel Co: Stop in Canmore for brunch at Rocky Mountain Bagel Co! Their new location has a gorgeous seating area with a beautiful view of the mountains, and is right off of the highway. They have tons of bagel options with toppings such as cream cheese and smoked salmon. You can even bring a dozen home!

3). Kananaskis Nordic Spa: This spa is perfect for pampering mom and spending some quality, relaxing time together. With different spa treatments and pools available, you can go for an afternoon or stay the night! Breathe in the fresh mountain air and de-stress with a picturesque soak in the hot tub, connecting with Mom. 

4). Banff Main Street: Head to Banff for a walk through the shops! There are so many hidden gems to check out, like the Christmas Store, Candy Shop and clothing boutiques. Even the tourist traps are fun, with lots of memorabilia for your day. Make sure to take lots of pictures, and stop by Banff Ave Brewing for a delicious meal to end the day with!  

Have fun with your Mom!
