Mother's Day brunch is a classic option for many families. Milwaukee has numerous specials to choose from throughout the downtown and suburbs. 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.

All locations, prices, and other details were verified in February 2013 and are subjected to change at any time without notice.

      Thanks, Cyndi! It's an awesome city.

      Amber, I love the art museum here, too. I'm sure that your kids will enjoy the zoo and a Brewers game. I hope that you're able to get down this way with them soon!

      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.
