Make It a Memorable Mother’s Day
Cornwall, ON – May 1, 2015 – It’s May, which means the weather is getting warmer, the beautiful colours of nature are starting to come to life, and our mothers need the thanks they deserve! There are plenty of ways to show your appreciation for mom, right here in Cornwall and the Counties.
Upper Canada Village, the famous 1860s pioneer village, is the perfect excursion to take your mother out this Mother’s Day. Upper Canada Village understands our mothers deserve a great day, dedicated solely to making them happy, that’s why this Mother’s Day, all moms get in to the Village for free!
Take mom through the historic village, where you can experience what life was like for people in the 1860s. With period actors demonstrating clothing, workforce jobs, and so much more. Enjoy an incredible, special Mother’s Day menu at Willard’s Hotel and the Harvest Barn Restaurant within the Village grounds, but be sure to make your reservations before it’s too late. Call 613-543-0660 to make your lunch or dinner reservations today, and treat mom to a lovely day at Upper Canada Village.
Mom has put up with a lot from us; imagine the stress that must have built up over the years dealing with us as kids (let’s be honest, as adults too.) Why not treat mom to a lovely day at the spa to regain some of her sanity that we stole from her over the years.
Choose from three beautiful and relaxing spa experiences, at The Georgian House in Alexandria, NAV Spa in Cornwall, and The Sweet Grass Spa in Hogansburg, NY. Each offers a wide selection of spa treatments, from massage therapy to esthetics services. Book mom’s appointment today and let her enjoy a well-deserved day of recuperation and therapy.
Of course, there are other forms of therapy that mom could use on her special day. Of course, I’m referring to retail therapy. Cornwall and the Counties have some great boutique shopping found throughout the region. Whether mom is searching for some great, unique home décor, a new wardrobe to kick off the summer months, or anything in between, Cornwall and the Counties’ shopping will be just what she needs this Mother’s Day.
To be fair, mom deserves more than one day of pampering, but this is the one day that actually appears on the calendar. Make it a great experience and make sure your mother feels appreciated this Mother’s Day.
Christmas spirit is alive and well in Cornwall and the Counties as Upper Canada Village's Alight at Night and The Alexandria Festival of Lights prepare to light up the region with their spectacular displays of Christmas lights.
One of the most fascinating displays of culture occurs at the Akwesasne International Powwow. On September 6 - 7, celebrate the traditions of the First Nation people.
