Mother’s Day Plans in Maine

Springtime in the Pine Tree State offers plenty to do as the grass starts to green and the sun stays out a little longer. There’s always something to do in Maine whether you’re beating your old score in Frogger at Arcadia or dancing to country music at Erik’s Church. But as the days get warmer, us Mainers start getting back to doing our favorite things outdoors.

There are countless options for a lovely Mother’s Day in Maine, especially on a beautiful sunny day like this year’s supposed to be. The day of moms is coming up this very Sunday on May 8 and the weather is expected to be sunny and in the 50s.

Sounds like the perfect day to spend getting lost in a beautiful botanical garden!

Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens

Boothbay’s infamous and stunning 300 acres of gardens is offering a Mother’s Day on them - Free admissions to all moms on Sunday! You just need to buy a ticket for yourself, show up with mama, and she’s free to frolic through the flowers.

The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens opened for the season this past weekend on May 1 and will be open daily 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. rain or shine until late October. April (kind of) showered and brought us May flowers and their spring bloomers are putting on a natural and beautiful show across their many gardens.

Rather than buying mom flowers, take her to 300 acres of gardens and spend the day together ooh-ing and awe-ing through the daffodil fields, a woodland Fairy House Village, Native Butterfly House, and spend quality time together right in nature. You may even see some trolls!
