Shop the Day Away

Take a stroll around the Village  and do some shopping in our one-of-a-kind stores. Home to more than 150 eclectic boutiques, galleries, restaurants, wineries, coffee and treat shops, the downtown area is chock full of unique spots to keep you busy for hours.

From jewelry, clothes, and home accessories to art, handcrafted goods, homemade treats, and more, Mom is sure to love her Brown County shopping experience! After all, our original shops are filled with things you can’t find anywhere else.

Let Mom pick out her own present or slip away and surprise her with one…either way, the real gift will be the time spent together browsing the Village!

Time for an Outdoor Adventure

Maybe Mom is looking for an outdoor adventure this Mother’s Day? Brown County is the perfect spot for that, too. Hit the trails in Brown County State Park, the largest state park in Indiana. Take on a rugged trail by foot or mountain bike …or simply stroll around one of the park’s lakes together. There are hiking and biking trails appropriate for all experience levels!

Whatever you choose, the beautiful scenery is sure to be a special treat for Mom. While you’re there, savor a picnic lunch or share some wine and cheese overlooking one of the park’s breathtaking vistas!

Besides hiking, there are also plenty of other outdoor opportunities for you and Mom to take advantage of including mountain biking, horseback riding, camping, canoeing/kayaking, hunting, fishing, golfing, bird watching, zip lining, disc golf, arrow tag, and ATV/buggy tours. Have some fun and bask in the great outdoors as you celebrate Mom this Mother’s Day.

Dig In to a Delicious Brunch

In addition to shopping and outdoor adventure, Brown County has some top-notch brunches scheduled for Mother’s Day. Special meals are being served up at Abe Martin Lodge, the Brown County Inn, Big Woods at Hard Truth Hills, and Nashville House. Some Mother’s Day meals are available all day, with special menu items selected with Mom in mind.

Spend some quality time sharing a delicious meal and good conversation to give Mom a break for the day!

Experience These Fun Events

Why not make Mother’s Day into a real getaway and spend the whole weekend in Brown County? If you do, you’ll find plenty of great events that Mom is sure to enjoy!

Any day or night this Mother’s Day weekend, you’re likely to stumble upon some live entertainment! Sip and sample wines at Country Heritage Winery, try a craft beer or cocktail at Hard Truth Hills, or enjoy a nice meal outside under the sun or stars, all while hearing great live music from local musicians.

Head over to the Spring Blossoms and Bargains Vendor Market for antiques and vintage goods. Unwind and maybe try something for the first time at SelfCare Saturday with yoga and acupuncture, massage, paddle boarding, journaling and disc golf. Mosey on over to the weekly Farmer’s Market in downtown Nashville for locally-grown produce, herbs, flowers, and handmade crafts.

Show Mom just how special she is with a trip to a pretty special place. Treat her to a Brown County getaway this Mother’s Day!
