Have Fun Together this Mother’s Day in New York

Even though our mothers took care of us when we were younger, we don’t always spare the time to visit them or talk to them. Sure, life may be busy, and our schedules can be hectic, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take some time off to show our appreciation for the woman who gave us life. Spend some quality time with her on Mother’s Day weekend, and if you’re not sure how to surprise her, just take a look at some of our suggestions below:


Weekend Fun at NY Botanical Gardens

You can even try your hand out with croquet on Daffodil Hill and there’s also tons of things for the young ones to enjoy. You’ll need to reserve your seat for Mother’s Day brunch at the Garden, and you’ll get to choose between a formal lunch or a fun food truck picnic.

Celebrate at Wave Hill

It’s time to spend some quality time together with your mum on Wave Hill. There’s plenty to do up here, including bird-watching, getting in a rousing session of yoga, visiting the Family Art Project and enjoying a delicious brunch. If you’re not all that interested in a formal sit-down meal, you can always pack your own picnic basket and just plonk yourselves down on Conifer Slope.
