Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 12th – and in Seattle it really is a hit or miss whether it will rain. Usually the weather outside isn’t a big deal of worrying about getting your mom out for brunch, but what do you do for a good time afterward? If you want to bond with your mom but don’t want to rain, we have a few suggestions – including some that are still rain-free out of time.
Museums are great choices, and Seattle is full of them, from the Frye Art Museum to the Museum of History and Industry. For mothers who like to go to the movies, some local theaters offer a very special experience. For sporty mothers, try bouldering or roller skating.
