Mother’s Day is just around the corner. How will you be celebrating the love of your mother, mom, mommy, mama? Niagara is one of those places where the celebration of mom doesn’t just have to happen on one particular day of the year, it can happen all year round.
However, moms do appreciate a particular day named after them and sure do enjoy the pampering. Allow us to share a few of our favourite ‘hot spots’ to bring your special lady.
Niagara-on-the-Lake (or N-O-T-L as we Niagarians like to call it) is filled with some mother-loving festivals, such as the Wine & Herb Festival, which is every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in May. Spend the day or weekend sampling delicious Niagara wine and fresh herb pairings in the lovely Wine Country of Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Touring passes are $43 per person (plus HST), which entitles you to a VQA wine and food pairing at each winery. Valid every event weekend.
Most celebrations involve food and wine, so don’t be surprised if you are starting to see a theme here. This event takes it one step further and includes beautiful hand-crafted gifts by local artisans. Take your mom to the Handmade Market, at Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery, on May 11th or 12th. Featuring over 60 local artisans, plus homemade goodness from local Food Trucks and of course wine at Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery.
And lastly (yes this hot spot also includes food and possibly wine), who doesn’t love delightfully, delectable, sweet Dungeness crab? If you are one of the many who fall into this category, you can’t miss The Keg Steakhouse and Bar’s Dungeness Crab menu, which is available until June 2nd. Can we tempt your taste buds with a Dungeness Crab Wedge Salad or a Crab & Shrimp Sirloin? Come and check out the newly renovated dining space at the Keg in the Courtyard by Marriott hotel. The transformation is unbelievable.
If you’re looking for accommodations for you and your mom, visit the newly renovated Courtyard by Marriott. Our space is completely refreshing. From our lobby to our spacious guest rooms, it’s a ‘Mother’s Day Kind of Stay’ at the newly renovated Courtyard.
