From Our Community: Mother’s Day in Pure Michigan

With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend, we asked our Facebook fans to tell us what they think the best way to celebrate with moms in Michigan is. Whether you’re spending the day with mom, friends, family or loved ones, it’s most importantly a day spend time together.

Below are some of our favorite responses. Happy Mother’s Day to all Pure Michigan moms!

“At the Watervale Inn on Lowering Herring Lake. Lovely Mother’s Day dinner which all mothers will adore.” – Cindy Engdahl

“Go to local park and take a walk/play with entire family!” – Julie L Jimkoski-Isabell

“My Mom and I use to head to Saugatuck to see what shops had opened and this weekend the Tulip Time is still going on so lots to see and enjoy. My favorite part if the weather was nice enough was just taking a walk on the beach with her. It was a gift to use both.” – Melissa Craig Derrick

“My Mom and I enjoy going to Frankenmuth for the afternoon – lunch and walking around and shopping :)” – Judy Munro

“Going to the Grand Rapids Art Museum.” – Dara DeVries

“Heading to the Grand Hotel with Mom and daughter!” – Cheryl Fritze

“Having your kids come home to spend time with me on Mother’s Day. Not doing anything in particular… just spending time.” – Lynne Swietoslawski Stenger
