Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and it is time to start planning a special day for mom. Whether you are celebrating your own mom, the mother of your kids, a grandmother, or even just someone you consider a mother figure, Sunday is a chance to spoil them and make sure they know how much they mean to you. There are plenty of activities going on for Mother’s Day in Atlanta. Check out one of these ways to say “I love you.”
Mother’s Day at Zoo Atlanta
What better way to celebrate mom than by checking out some of the best moms in the world! Zoo Atlanta is a great chance to see mama animals with their adorable babies. Check out the mother/son duo of the Giant Pandas Lun Lun and her son Mei Lan. Or watch the frolicking of little 6-year old orangutan Pelari as he climbs all over his ever-patient mother! Watching the interactions between animal moms and their babes shows that motherhood has a lot of similarities across the natural world!

Did this adorable photo grab your attention? We hope so, because we have a very important announcement to make… *drumroll please* Willow and Bonnie now have access to their outdoor habitat! If they choose to go outside, you may see them during your next visit.⠀ ⠀ For those of you wondering why it took so long for Willow to be visible to guests, it’s because sloths are a tropical species and the temperatures needed to stay warm enough overnight for them to safely venture out! #OnlyZooATL⠀ #sloth #slothsofinstagram
Brunch at Park Tavern
Treat the mom in your life to a fantastic meal with gorgeous views at Park Tavern in Piedmont Park. Sit back and relax with bottomless mimosas as you enjoy the greenery of the park or the towering city skyline. There will be a scrumptious brunch buffet, so even the pickiest eaters will be able to find something they love. And if you are planning on bringing the whole family, you’re in luck. Kids under 6 eat free! This event is popular and always sells out, so be sure to get your reservations!
Atlanta Botanical Gardens
Mother’s Day and flowers go together like peanut butter and chocolate. It’s just a perfect match. And where is the best place to enjoy incredible flowers? The Atlanta Botanical Gardens of course! Stroll around the grounds and enjoy the vibrant colors of nature with your favorite mom. This year, Mother’s Day coincides with the Atlanta Rose Show at the Gardens. Check out the beautiful blooms and wow your mom with roses of every color!
Be sure to show the Mom in your life how special she is to you this Mother’s Day!
