When it comes to special holidays like Mother’s Day, we tend to gravitate towards the same old gifts every year. Things like flowers, jewellery, and chocolates are certainly the easiest to pick up on the way to brunch, especially if you’ve left it to the last minute, but they may not be what mom wants. According to a survey conducted by IPG Mediabrands, six out of ten mothers would rather spend time with their family than receive gifts and treats on their big day.
If you’re looking to spoil mom with time rather than riches this Mother’s Day, a day trip out of the city is a perfect way to show her how much your care. As your choice of auto repair services in Mississauga, Veerpreet has a unique perspective on this holiday. Not only can we service your vehicle so it’s in peak condition before your Mother’s Day trip, but — as driving enthusiasts — we can also help you choose a nearby destination this May.
Not to be confused with Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake is a quaint town known for its small boutiques and restaurants. This historic 19th-century village is in the heart of Canada’s wine country, so it’s the ideal destination for the budding sommelier.
Prince Edward County
Another popular wine destination is Prince Edward County, a VGA region that Black Prince and Sandbanks Estate wineries call home. For those uninterested in wine, there’s more than your favourite varietal to discover in this picturesque part of the province. You can take mom on a scenic bike tour, or you can spend the day sampling the culinary delights at one of the county’s many high-end restaurants.
Though you may have left wine country behind by going north, you won’t miss it when you spend the afternoon in Collingwood. If you need to stretch your legs after the drive, you can explore Collingwood from its hiking trails where you can uncover natural wonders like waterfalls and caves. If you and mom would rather relax once you arrive, check out the Blue Mountain village’s world-renowned Scandinave Spa for one of their restorative treatments.
Whether you head north or south, make sure you schedule a tune-up with us before you go. One of our experienced mechanics will inspect your vehicle to ensure it’s up to the task this May. This appointment is also a great opportunity to switch over to your all season tires if you haven’t done so already. Considering the weather we’ve had this past spring, it’s not unusual for some drivers to wait until mid-to-late May for this changeover.
A day trip that includes a tour, wine tasting, and a gourmet meal can be expensive. If you think you won’t have the budget for her big day and new tires, think again! You can expect a great price on tires in Mississauga when you visit our service centre, so you can spend more on mom when it comes to your trip. Though affordable, we guarantee reliable service. The crew at Veerpreet only ever offers the best tires Mississauga has to offer, with such brands as BFGoodrich, Michelin, and Bridgestone.
If you’re worried about timing, remember we’re open 24/7, 365. Our crew will do our best to see you and your vehicle before your departure. You can call us anytime for more information about the services we offer. Whether it’s a basic maintenance checkup or a tire changeover, our experienced mechanics will get the job done. Until then, have a happy Mother’s Day!
