Romantic Things to Do in New York City

Romantic Things to Do in New York City

New York is a totally different city if you visit with someone you love, and the city offers some romantic outings that couples shouldn't miss. From dinner cruises and ice skating to carriage rides in the park, here’s what you need to know to have a romantic time in New York.

Take in the Skyline Views

There's nothing quite like a bird's-eye view of New York City. Grab your favorite person and enjoy views of the city's skyscrapers, parks, and waterfront on a helicopter tour. For a more modestly priced option, catch the lights of the big city from One World Observatory or the Empire State Building Observation Deck—both offer fantastic views across Manhattan.

Cruise New York Harbor

Nothing says romance like a cruise. Head out for an evening sightseeing sail to marvel at the city's sparkling skyline, or try a dinner cruise to enjoy a meal with the best views in town. Most cruises offer drinks for purchase, so you can sail in luxury with a glass of wine in hand.

Explore Central Park

Central Park is one of the most celebrated New York landmarks, and its picturesque walking paths, meadows, and historic attractions shouldn't be missed. For a fantastic couples experience, skip a regular tour of the park and opt for a romantic carriage ride, complete with the timeless clip-cop of a horse's hooves. If you're visiting in the winter, strap on ice skates for a few laps around Wollman Rink, with the park draped in snow. 

See a Broadway Show

For the best theater experience money can buy, don't miss a Broadway musical. With dozens of new productions and classic revivals staged each season, you're sure to find something spectacular. Remember to book tickets in advance to secure great seats at one of New York's historic theaters, since popular shows tend to sell out.

Enjoy a Night on the Town

Dinner and dancing is a classic date, and New York offers nearly limitless options for both. For a real VIP experience, book a limo to chauffeur you around town, and head to a rooftop lounge for cocktails with a view. End your night with a dinner cruise or Harlem jazz show to turn the evening into a truly special occasion.
