The Best Out-Of-The-Box Mother's Day Activities in Charlotte, NC

This Mother's Day, break out of the Mother's Day rut and do something that breaks the mold. Hats off to these awesome local Charlotte activities she'll love.

Make Something Awesome Together

Tapas Tasting

Making memories with your mother is one of the best parts about Mother’s Day, but who says you can’t bond over trying something new! If your mom’s home is full of plants and getting her hand dirty in the garden is one of her favorite past times, then class with Plant Nite is the perfect Mother's Day activity. But if she's a master in the kitchen or a foodie like yourself, then a cooking class or a tapas tasting with Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen, will be a wonderful Mother’s Day tradition to start.

Take a Relax Day


Sometimes we let our busy lives get ahead of us and there’s nothing quite like relaxing with your mom. At Aerial CLT you both will be able to destress and unwind with one of their beginner aerial silks classes. And if you haven’t tried a pottery class as a stress reliever, then you are missing out! A pottery class with Carolina Clay will not only help you both relax but you’ll get to take home something special to remind you of your time together.

Be Her Hero

Murder Mystery

If your mom is secretly hoping to get locking in a room with you so she can pry like all mothers do best, then take her to an escape room! Exit Strategy has 8 rooms to choose from in two locations. You will solve clues and riddles to that will lead you through the room. Test your communication skills with one of their challenging rooms and learn something new about your relationship. Escape rooms can be challenging, but let’s be honest so can mothers!  

Eat, Drink, Repeat

Cocktail Class

Eating and drinking are they way we bond with our friends, so why couldn’t it work with mom’s too? Take her on a South End food tour with Tour De Food and show her all you favorite spots. She will be blown away by your culinary expertise and you both my find your new Sunday brunch spot. But if creating craft cocktail is up your alley, then a Shake. Sip. Stir. Socialize. cocktail class with Liberate Your Palate has to be on your Mother’s Day to do list. You will learn to make unique craft cocktails and garnishes like a pro. Get ready too impress with your new cocktail skills!

Go Exploring

Canopy Tour

Local mom’s don’t always have the opportunity to get out of the house and see something new. So take her out and leave the daily chores behind! A bicycle or segway tour with Charlotte NC Tours will give you and your mom the opportunity to see the city you both love. From Uptown to Dilworth, you will explore new parts of the city. If you’d like to take your adventure to new heights, then head to the USNWC for a canopy tour. You will travel through the trees and get to see the entire center from up above.

Get Fit

Indoor Rock Climbing

Mom’s are consistently on the go and it can be hard to find time to focus on personal health. So this Mother’s Day burn some calories with your favorite person! At Sky High Sports you and your mom can jump, swing and flip at their trampoline park. After a day of jumping, you and your legs will feel it. Rock climbing can be a new and fun way to get active and at Inner Peaks beginners and rock climbing pros are welcome. You and your mom will reach your goals as you climb to the top!

For sure, any one of these ideas will make a Mother's Day impossible to forget. And you will surprise her even more by doing something on the weekend before.
