With everything from a three course seated brunch at the Lake Park Bistro to a buffet right in the heart of nature at Boerner Botanical Gardens to a Rock 'n Roll Event at the Harley-Davidson Motor, there is something for everyone. There are a number of additional Mother's Day promotions as well, such as free admission for moms at the Milwaukee County Zoo. Take advantage of all that the city has to offer with your mom this year.

These are great ideas for Mothers Day. Sad to say that my mother died a few years ago. I´ll just visit her in the cemetery and bring her own flowers from her garden. She would love it. Thanks for sharing.
