Summer is in full swing and summer love is in the air. If you’re looking for a romantic evening (or day!) we’ve got you covered. Here are the best summer date ideas in NYC.
Act Like Kids At Coney Island
Head to Coney Island and have a great date at Luna Park. Ride the Cyclone roller coaster, feast on Nathan’s hot dogs, and kiss on the Wonder Wheel. Of course, you’re already on the beach so go for a swim or at least a romantic walk along the shore. Top the day off with fried Oreos, ice cream, or funnel cake. (Or all three!)
Have A Romantic Central Park Adventure
Cliche? Yes. Romantic? Yes. The options in Central Park are almost unlimited. You can take the rowboat ride in the lake. You can visit the animals at the zoo. Go see a free concert or show in the park and get cultured at a Shakespeare performance. Plan a picnic. Go for a walk. Whatever you do, your backdrop is the perfect NYC date location.
Take A Food Tour
Why have dinner at one restaurant when you can visit four? Book a progressive culinary experience with four courses at four different restaurants. Your food tour guide will take you, your date, and other guests around New York City on an eating adventure in Williamsburg, Flatiron, or East Village. You two will eat, drink, and meet some of the chefs and owners of NYC restaurants.
Plant Yourselves At Brooklyn Botanic Garden
The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is home to beautiful trees and plants that make a very romantic background. There are guided tours and workshops, but you’re also free to roam together. Walking around the garden with a coffee is a great first date. And if you go on Fridays before noon, it’s free to enter.
