Unique and Memorable Mother’s Day Ideas (For Brave Moms With a Flare For The Fantastic)


Chocolates and flowers are always a safe bet, but if your mom prefers thrills and chills to chilled champagne and caviar, then here are some experiential ideas to give her one very memorable Mother’s Day.

Airboat Rides, Kissimmee
With rides every 30 minutes, mom won’t miss a second of fun - and gliding on the water is quite a thrill.
ATVs and Dirt Bikes, Brooksville
Let mom let her hair down! This is one of the best places in the world to ride ATVs and dirt bikes. Explore trails, tracks and hills, or ride off in the woods. She can choose.
Big Shot Paintball, Miami and Homestead
Don’t shoot your mother! Take her to play paintball and let her play all day for free! 
Flight Simulators at Fantasy of Flight, Polk City
We all know moms are great drivers on the ground - see how talented she is in the air in a state-of-the-art flight simulator. Have lunch at the Compass Rose, right onsite.
Florida Railroad Museum, Parrish
Moms may go a little loco all year, but they’ll ride the locomotion for free on Saturday and Sunday, May 7-8, 2011. This one is tame, no courage needed!
Flying Trapeze School, Miami
If your mom's the ringleader of her own three-ring circus in her every day life, give her lessons to master the flying trapeze - right in the heart of downtown Miami.
Parasailing, Hawks Cay Resort, Duck Key
Give mom the view of all views, from 1,000 feet in the air over the Florida Keys. She’ll love the sights and she’ll love you for the experience.
Treasure Hunting, Charlotte Harbor
It’s a fact that Jose Gaspar (aka Gasparilla) buried chests of money and treasure on the islands in and around Charlotte Harbor. Rent a metal detector and explore! (Good luck!)
Zip Lining & Horseback Riding at Forever Florida, St. Cloud
Take mom on a Coach Safari, Horseback Safari or Zipline Safari at Forever Florida.  Don’t miss a beautiful brunch at the Cypress Restaurant. For reservations, call 407-957-9794, ext. 1. 
Zip Lining at St. Augustine Alligator Farm, St. Augustine
Is mom an adventure-addict? Bring her to zipline over crocs and gators on their new zipline. White knuckles, here we come!
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, brave or blissfully fainthearted. (I'm the latter!)
