25 Things To Do for Mother’s Day 2017 in New York City

It's here! Mother's Day is Sunday, May 14, and we think all you moms deserve to have a great weekend in NYC—rain or shine. 

Of course, you can go to brunch first—see our Manhattan/Bronx recommendations here; Brooklyn spots here; and Queens restaurants here—or lounge in bed while your fans bring you baked goods and large quantities of caffeine. But then it's time to treat yourself and the kids to some family time, NYC style. 

We've rounded up 25 ideas to celebrate Mother's Day, 2017. Some are just for you, but most are special events that can be enjoyed with your children. 

Not enough for you? Check out our Spring Fun Guide or the just-released May GoList for even more ideas. Or perhaps you prefer a spring day trip out of the city for the special occasion. 

Mother's Day Brunches on Long Island

There’s no denying breakfast in bed can be sweet on Mother’s Day. But this year, why not suggest your family go out for a delicious brunch at one of many restaurants across Long Island? You can sip a mimosa or bloody mary, enjoy a scrumptious meal, and best of all, you won’t have to clean any dishes.

We’ve rounded up 20 restaurants across the Island that offer brunch options, from traditional omelets and pancakes to more creative dishes that feature local produce and international flair. Some spots offer more than just a meal, with free entertainment and activities for the whole family. Call ahead for reservations since places tend to book up quickly on this special day.
