Get to know the City

NYC natives know the city is full of amazing things to do all year round, no matter what occasion. But when it comes to date night, not so much. The typical dinner and a movie is great from time to time, but we all know too much of a good thing isn’t…well, good.


Some of the best romantic things to do in NYC are closer and cheaper than you think. Here’s a few idea for your next night out:


Jane’s Carousel is a great, inexpensive and a blast-from-the-past adventure you and your lover can go on. Bring back childhood memories as you both ride a fancy carousel horse. The nostalgia alone sets the mood for a great night ahead.


There’s nothing like a stroll in the park! The Brooklyn Botanical Garden is the best romantic date idea for a classic walk to remember with your significant other. The garden is not only a beautiful gem for fantastic photo opportunities, but the Brooklyn Museum and Prospect Park is not too far from it. If you’re an outdoorsy and simple couple, then this is the perfect date spot.


Lastly, we suggest taking it up a notch for date night with a scenic NYC helicopter tour. Helicopter dates are becoming a popular trend in the world of romance. From in-air proposals to wedding entrances, this date idea takes the cake. A date aboard a private helicopter guarantees an intimate setting for couples, breathtaking aerial views of NYC and a change in pace for a date night.
