Mother’s Day isn’t just a way for retailers to help boost the economy. It has roots dating back to centuries. The Greeks and Romans set aside a day to honor mothers of pagan gods. Early England had a day called Mothering Sunday, a day for poor peasant servants to return home to visit their mothers. Today, some form of Mother’s Day is observed all around the world.
This Mother’s Day, honor your mother with a weekend visit to New York City. There are so many great ways to celebrate the day in the city, and our New York car service will help make the weekend hassle free so you can enjoy the day with your mom. We offer safe NYC ground transportation with professional drivers and the luxury that Mom (and you) deserve. Sit back, relax with Mom, and leave the driving to us. Here are some suggested events going on in NYC for Mom’s Day.
