Leu Gardens opens its gates to moms free of charge for Mother's Day


  • Bruno Raffa
Before you go buy the largest bottle of Japanese cherry blossom body lotion from the nearest Bath & Body Works and ruin another Mother's Day, think about the possibilities. You could disappoint your mom with the same gift you got her last year, or, for 10 bucks, you could spend a nice afternoon with the person who puts up with your shit by strolling through the beautiful pathways of Harry P. Leu Gardens. You'd only have to pay for yourself because admission for mothers is free this weekend. Take your mamá on a tour of the historic Leu House or explore Florida's largest rose garden. You can bring your own food for a picnic on the patio, but save room for dessert – Sugarbuzz Dezert Company and Peak Season Pops are setting up to sell sweet deliciousness.
