Restock mom’s wine rack with her favorite local varietals. Help support our local vintners along our regional Wine & Ale Trail and pick up a bottle (or a few) of local wine from one of our wineries. Is mom not a wine drinker? Pick up a growler of craft beer or traditional cask ale from one of the three breweries on the Wine & Ale Trail!

Has Coronavirus got you tight on cash? During these strange times, I’m sure mom would love nothing more than actually getting to see her loved ones, and not from behind a computer screen. Richland County has plenty of wide-open spaces for meeting up with family while maintaining six feet of space for social distancing. Enjoy the sunshine and fresh air with mom at one of these social distancing-friendly outdoor spaces in Richland County.

No matter what you choose, this Mother’s Day is sure to be memorable! Make sure to take pictures of the unique ways you choose to celebrate Mother’s Day so you’ll have them to show to future generations!
