3 Authentic Things to Do with Mom for Mothers Day (Video)

mother's day

Mother’s Day is around the corner (May 12th) and if you want to celebrate mom in an authentic way, consider three ideas to make it extra special including two adventures and one delicious recipe.

How about a day of picking fresh Florida blueberries and a stroll through a towering maze of Florida sunflowers? To top it off, we’ve got a fresh blueberry recipe to bake when you get home – perfect for mom. Let’s start with the blueberry picking adventure.

An hour north of Tampa, on Florida’s Adventure Coast, otherwise known as Hernando County, you’ll find rolling green hills, pastures and farmland. Farm crops of all varieties grow here including blueberries.

South of Brooksville, in a town called Masaryktown, moss-draped oak canopy roads create a perfect backdrop for two area farms with unique experiences: U-Picktopia for blueberry picking and Sweetfields Farms for a walk through a maze of Florida sunflowers.
