It’s the time of the year when you paint a colorful smile on the face of god’s gift to humanity, mothers. On Mother’s Day, we don’t just celebrate an event but a person, her sacrifices, courage, and unconditional love.
When you’re in New York City, you’ll be given many choices from cruises, brunches, events, concerts, museum visits, all-day SPAs, and what not?
Your mom will be spoilt for choice on the variety the Big Apple offers on a single day. We recommend a brunch at one of the most celebrated eateries in the city, a visit to the SPA, followed by a sunset cruise with a breathtaking view of the city skyline.
You could also enjoy a private movie screening with mommy dearest and go on a shopping spree at the most iconic shopping destinations on 5th Avenue.
At Carmel Limos, New York City, we’re offering special discounts on our luxury limo rides. So you can book an all-day limo with us and take your mom around New York if she’s visiting. Better yet, surprise her by picking her up from the airport in one of our lavish airport limos.
So, let’s get the ball rolling. Here’s a specially curated list of the exciting things to do on Mother’s Day 2022 to make it memorable.
Cruise around the Harbor
A New Yorker will vouch for a cruise around this spectacular city either in the morning, during sundown, or at night with the lights illuminating the city. A brunch cruise on a lazy Sunday afternoon is the best way to tell your mom how much you appreciate her.
With brunch/dinner and entertainment onboard, a glass of sparkling champagne (or beer, if you will), and the magnificent view of the Statue of Liberty, Mother’s Day will be extra special. Spending quality time with mommy dearest with bottomless Mimosas and some caviar or steak will uplift her mood.
Many operators like Skyline Cruises, City Cruises New York Pier 61, and Event Cruises NYC offer great deals on their cruise packages. So grab the best seats before they’re sold out.
Book, a Carmel Limos, ride on our mobile app to get to your favorite cruise center. Don’t forget to book our waiting services at slashed prices if you plan to take a city tour after the cruise.
Photo Tour of Central Park
Take your mom on a Photo Op to Central Park, which is buzzing with activity all day. The private walking tour boasts spectacular views of the colorful flora, which will be the backdrop of the seventy-five portraits and candid clicks from a professional photographer.
You’ll have celebrity moments captured that you can frame for a lifetime. This tour will also cover Times Square, the iconic Plaza hotel, and strolls around the Bow Bridge, Bethesda Fountain, Strawberry Fields, and Sheep Meadow.
Doesn’t walking interest you? No problem. Take a carriage ride at Central Park, where you’ll be dropped off at Tavern on the Green. Alternatively, check out the fantastic Boathouse for a unique experience.
Book one of our fully-sanitized sedans or SUVs through the Carmel Limo app if you plan to tour with your friends and their mommies. We offer convenience, safety, and affordability in one place.
A Decadent Lunch Treat for Mom
New York City is never short of places that serve decadent lunch menus. However, suppose you and mommy are health fanatics. In that case, we recommend Dante at Macdougal Street for their excellent a la carte menu that includes in-house banana bread, Avocado Toast, and a wide range of cocktails or healthy smoothies to go with it.
Try the steaks and wine at Cote at 16 West 22nd Street. This South Korean specialty restaurant serves steak fillet mignons, Ssamjang, and rose wines. Is your mother a Deli person? Then, we recommend Katz’s Deli at 205 E Houston Street and their corned beef sandwiches, nova lox, and bagels. Their Mother’s Day Breakfast in Bed package will be the perfect gift to start Mother’s Day celebrations.
Binge on Mexican delicacies from Atla that include duck carnitas, lamb barbacoa, and refreshing veggies. You can conclude the delicious lunch with their famous Tres Leches cake, which is often the talk of the town.
Love Seafood? Head to Ed’s Lobster Bar, which serves Clambake (family-sized and for individuals), lobster, mussels, potatoes, coleslaw, and corn on the cob. Relish their white, red, and rosé wines in true English style. Book a Carmel Limo and we’ll be at your doorstep in minutes to whisk you, and your mom away to these great eateries on Mother’s Day.
Spend a Relaxing Day at the Spa
Relax, rejuvenate, unwind and press the reset button at one of the detoxifying saunas in the city. Get a relaxing Swedish Spa, opt for a curing Balinese Spa at Higher DOSE or go the ancient way at Aire Ancient Baths for Turkish baths and other relaxation methods. Indulge in unique treatments like flotarium, thermal pools, wine baths, or luxurious infrared saunas and enjoy some muscle-relaxing experiences.
You could also keep your visit budget-friendly with a foot massage or hair spa where the Spa will use aromatic oils to soothe your senses and create a dreamy world of relaxation.
Alternatively, if you’re a luxury lover, head to Guerlain Spa at the Plaza hotel, where you get customized services suited for your wellness profile. Then, book your Carmel Limo for a relaxing drive back home while all your stress is washed away.
Museum of Ice Creams
If your mother prefers a sweet treat to visit the Metropolitan Museum or the American Museum of National History, we recommend the Museum of Ice Cream at 558 Broadway.
The museum is known for its innovations in transforming multi-sensory experiences with ice creams. MOIC NYC offers immersive experiences on crafts, games, and unique cocktails on three floors for the Mother’s Day weekend, especially to celebrate Mother’s Day.
They’ll be serving Mimosas, frothy and thick milkshakes, whipped cream desserts, and delicious ice cream. The ice cream spread is to die for and will include classics with a modern twist like Banana Splits with a sparkling rose cocktail, sweet pink and chocolate drip, chocolate fudge and edible wafer flowers, etc.
Kids can indulge in a game of craft your own ice cream cone bouquets or dive and splash into the Sprinkles pool. Book Carmel Limos’ multipoint pickup and drop-off services to take your friends and their moms along.
Retail Therapy at New York’s Best Shopping Destinations
You’ll find the finest luxury brands in clothing, accessories, gourmet, books, and lifestyle in the stores in New York City’s five boroughs.
The 5th Avenue is a shopaholic paradise lined with Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Cartier, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks, and other upscale fashion house boutiques. You can also explore Brookfield Place, Hudson Yards, the Showplace, and the vibrant South of Houston Street (SoHo), where a cluster of cult brands like Glossier, Reformation, and American Two Shot reside.

Broadway Entertainment all the Way
Enjoy a matinee or evening show at Broadway and swing into the comedy mood with the Plaza Suite Comedy Play performed by Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, all set at the Plaza Hotel in suite 719. This play inspires a comic take on the complexities of marriage. Mr. Saturday Night is a musical satire by Billy Crystal that focus on fixing a dysfunctional family.
If your mother is a romantic, then we recommend Moulin Rouge, where Baz Luhrmann’s Magnum Opus comes to life on stage.
The glitz, grandeur, and glory of Moulin Rouge are recalled in all its Parisien splendor. But, of course, you can also jam at the Hamilton musical, where popular hip-hop and rap are used to enlighten the audiences on the struggles of Alexander Hamilton.
Take a Carmel Limo NYC to Broadway for a comfortable drive while you gear up to treat yourself to some visual and musical extravaganza.
Skate Party at Washington Park
Let your mom relive her teenage days at Washington Park, 5th Ave Park Slope, Brooklyn. Mothers can embrace their inner child with fun skating sessions, food, and drinks.
The center will be hosting a giveaway to the first fifty moms attending. You can also get free skating lessons and participate in skating games and photo sessions. Buddies BK is also offering free coffee for the first fifty attendees.
After an enjoyable skating session, indulge in some comfort food like hotdogs, pizzas, and cinnamon rolls. The Brooklyn Skate Park is an expansive green space that will soothe your senses and give you and your mother some private time together.
