A Mother’s Day weekend trip to the Big Apple

Here are five reasons a trip to New York City will make sure that you remain No. 1 in mom's good books for years to come.

You could send flowers or take her out to breakfast, but that will only get you so far in mom’s good books. The road to mom’s heart isn’t paved with tulips and breakfast sausage. No, the real way to win her over is by taking her on a trip that she’ll never forget. And where better than the city that never sleeps.

Here are five reasons a trip to New York City will make sure that you remain No. 1 in her good books for years to come. (Take that high-achieving siblings.)

Stay with the best

It was good enough for Eloise, and with 282 luxuriously appointed guest rooms to choose from there’s plenty of room for you to create your own storybook ending. Toast mom through tears at the Champagne Bar then pamper yourselves silly at the Vinotherapie Spa and wine lounge. fairmont.com/theplaza

Time for at high tea

Not many places can compare to the luxury and opulence of the $105 US Mother’s Day high tea at the Russian Tea Room. With ginger and sesame flavoured crab cakes, smoked salmon on black bread with goat cheese and caviar among your nibble options, you’ll find tea time is a splurge you’ll remember. russiantearoomnyc.com

Play on Broadway

Will it be a classic she’s always wanted to see like Hair or Mama Mia? Or will it be something fresh like The House of Blue Leaves or War Horse? Doesn’t matter. Pack your tissue, stop in at a discount ticket seller and grab a seat. This is Broadway; you can’t lose.


Shop ‘til you drop

From grabbing some beauty tips from the ladies at Bloomingdale’s to spending an afternoon drooling on 5th Avenue or haggling with the trendsetting bag sellers on Canal Street, there are a million ways to help her spend some money with great bargains to boot. nycgo.com/shopping
