The special mothers in your life deserve a treat. This year, why not try something other than a family meal at home? New York is a city willing to pamper its residents and visitors, if they know where to go. Continue reading to get some ideas for unique Mother’s Day experiences in New York.
The most popular activity on or around Mother’s Day is eating out. There’s definitely something special about gathering with loved ones around a table and sharing a delicious meal. New York is an ideal place to embark on an epicurean journey. With countless fine dining, world-renowned or trendy restaurants all over the city, there’s something for everyone. Take a look at our suggestions of international restaurants or splurge-worthy and elegant restaurants.
Since every mother is a working mother, this time of year is the perfect moment to gift a spa experience. After all, who wouldn’t want to receive a rejuvenating massage while inhaling soothing scents? New York, as expected, has plenty of options for all budgets, but we have chosen our favorite spas near Midtown.
The outdoorsy and laid back mothers might instead appreciate something as simple as a picnic with the family. Gone are the days of carrot sticks and soggy sandwiches. Treat the mothers to a packed, healthy and gourmet picnic in Central Park. We recommend the company Perfect Picnic or purchasing a Zabar’s food basket and putting together your own picnic.
Another experience that will guarantee a lot of fresh air is sailing on a cruise around New York. There are different companies out there offering great packages. Some are tailored for couples, party groups or families. To make the experience even more unique, choose a package that includes a meal and drinks. Some even offer preferred seating to ensure you don’t miss out on stunning skyline views!
Summer is almost here. If you have to postpone Mother’s Day celebrations or if your prefer to be spontaneous, take your family on a day trip to a Long Island beach. Every year, the Long Island Railroad offers excellent beach getaway packages, usually starting around Memorial Day. Spend the day walking along the white-sand beach of Long Beach with your family or explore Fire Island and its iconic lighthouse.
Although we love Mother’s Day, we believe that it’s important to treat our loved ones year round. A great way to do it is by surprising them with a weekend away in New York. Book one of our special NYC hotel packages and show your loved ones that #NowTheyAreRoyal.
