Oh, New York, New York… A city so nice they named it twice. With its adrenaline-rushing skyscrapers and their spectacular views, it’s hard not to fall in love more and more with New York – or with your special someone. If the plethora of grand gestures set in this city on the big and small screen don’t seem to make the cut for you, here are a few romantic things to do in NYC.
Go to a Broadway show
Since the dawn of time, love and music have gone hand in hand, so why don’t grab your partner’s hand and go see a Broadway show? You can relive your childhood seeing your all-time favourite Disney movies turned into musicals or immerse yourself in the universe of your number-one book represented as a play. Fall in love with the actors’ charm as you spend time with your soulmate.
Have a romantic picnic in Central Park
If you’re a more low key lover, skip the show and grab your picnic basket. Go for a walk through Central Park and be mesmerized by this oasis in the middle of the Big Apple. If you can’t seem to choose where to sit down for a love-filled lunch, our pick is near Belvedere Castle. The beautiful contrast of this castle against New York City’s skyline makes this the ideal spot to consolidate your love forever.
Fall in love like the stars
Have you ever watched a movie and just dreamed about being in the very spot where a couple finally has their first kiss? Well, in the City of Dreams, your dreams will come true! You can book a New York City Romantic Movie Site Tour and take your loved one on the ride of their life. While you’re at it, get your picture taken at these iconic spots as if you were in the movie.
Watch the sunset
There’s nothing more romantic than watching the beauty of nature unfold right before your very eyes. And although the skyscrapers might seem to block your view on the streets, they can also offer you the most breath-taking scenes in your life. The best spot without a doubt to see this beautiful phenomenon is certainly the Empire State Building. Take your partner up there to see how the sun sinks into the horizon and witness New York City starting to twinkle up like the sky above.
Dine in the sky
New York City is known for its skyscrapers which offer limitless views of the entirecity. Many of these structures are topped with high-end restaurants with world-renowned chefs, ready to prepare a meal for you to relish in with your partner. If you’re willing to go all out and heighten your lover’s senses, book a table at Manhatta, a restaurant on the 60th floor in the 28 Liberty Building, which offers not only exceptional views of the city, but also seasonal dishes accompanied by remarkable hospitality.
Relax and release
The best way to get closer to your partner is to release tension to make room for connection. Allow yourselves to break away from your daily stress and book an experience at AIRE Ancient Baths New York. Right in the heart of a historic textile factory in Tribeca lies an astounding ethereal temple for healing body and soul, a place that takes us to the days of Cleopatra and Mark Antony with these ancient restorative rituals.
