There’s a bounty of activities going on this year for Mother’s Day. Here are some local favorites that will make your mom feel appreciated.

Get Outside!

Enjoy beautiful views, historical Texas landmarks, and much more as this will be a place you’ll want to come back for some additional exploring. If you and mom are into parks and wildlife, then show her Lady Bird Lake. This a great location to rent paddleboards, water bikes, kayaks and canoes.

Zip line in Austin!

If you’re looking to bring the thrill seeker out of mom this year, Lake Travis has what you need.
