New York City offers a vast variety of cultural, ethnic, historical sights. Entertainment, the arts, museums, shopping, park activities, festivals, foodie tours – whatever your interest, you’ll find the best of everything in NYC. A great place for romantics, we’ve rounded up 6 romantic activities; from the spectacular views of Manhattan skyline, to the fine romantic dinner by a fire place.
Walk the Brooklyn Bridge.
Spanning over the East River, the Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest roadway bridges in the United States. Take in the breath-taking view of the Lower Manhattan Skyscrapers any time of the day, but a sunset always adds a little romance.
Dine at The River Café.
Elected one of the most romantic restaurants in the country for its ambiance and amazing River view. Located on a barge docked on East River, they offer New American Fare with a sensual vibe in a very romantic setting.
Mix your own romance.
Create your own scent at The Scentarium, a unique place in the world of custom perfumes. You can book a private event or take a workshop that will teach you about the bespoke perfumery. You’ll get to leave with your own custom fragrance.
Relax in one of New York City’s many bathhouses.
Get steamy in the sauna, enjoy a message or get a therapeutic beaten with fresh oak leaves. Admission at the East Village’s Russian & Turkish Baths is $45 per person and has co-ed time slots daily.
Picnic in Central Park.
It may seem cliché, but there’s nothing like a romantic day in the park with a great packed lunch. Pick a nice quiet spot under a tree an observe New Yorkers in their natural habitat.
Lounge at LeGrande Lounge.
Located on the second floor of The Time New York Hotel. With a mezzanine location semi-hidden from view of the lobby, the dimly-lit lounge radiates an atmosphere as progressive as it is private. Its highly stylized interiors create a sense of reveal the further one ventures into the space, making it equally ideal for a quick drink or lingering conversation.
Drink with a view.
Seasonal cocktails are served atop of Rockefeller Center at Bar Sixtyfive – 65 stories above Manhattan and New York City’s highest terrace bar! There is something more romantic about a view from above.
