Picnic at Orchard Beach
Grab take out from mom’s favorite Bronx restaurant and a blanket and head to Orchard beach. Or pack a delish charcuterie spread and some bubbly, and enjoy the view!
Lunch al fresco on Arthur Ave

Take a trail ride through Pelham Bay Park
If mom love horses, schedule a trail ride at the Bronx Equestrian Center in Pelham Bay Park. Trail rides are $65 for an hour and can be booked with a $10 deposit.
Chill with mom at a brewery
For moms who love a good brew, take her to Gun Hill Brewery and enjoy a few cold ones. Bring food from a local restaurant or pack some of her favorite finger foods and wash it down with some of Gun Hill’s ales like Get Ova Here! and Guavalicious.
Surprise Virtual Wild Encounter with a Bronx Zoo Animal
If mom is an animal lover, she might enjoy this fun virtual encounter with another super mom: an alligator from the Bronx Zoo! Alligator moms are devoted and caring animals. Plus mom will meet a surprise animal guest during the 15 minute encounter and receive a fun stainless steel thermal tumbler with an alligator and the words, “From one supermom to another.” Order by April 30th to receive the tumbler in time!
Morning yoga- or just coffee!- at Mottley Kitchen
The rooftop at Mottley Kitchen is a beautiful location to enjoy a Mother’s Day breakfast, but there are also yoga classes that take place with a $15 suggested donation fee every Sunday from 10:30 to 11:30 am.
Picnic with a view at Wave Hill
Another picnic idea is Wave Hill’s annual Mother’s Day Picnic. Blankets aren’t usually allowed at Wave Hill, so Mother’s Day is a special day when families can bring a blanket and enjoy the gorgeous views. Each picnic, perfect for two to three people, is $99 plus tax; the children’s picnic is $23. Wave Hill Members save 10%!
