10 Best NYC Date Ideas

Here are some of my favorite NYC dates. These dates are perfect for a traditional date with your significant other or your friends in New York City! But they can also be reworked into a date in your hometown.

1.          Broadway show and dinner- pick a 7:30/8pm show and book dinner at Becco (my all-time favorite all you can eat fresh pasta place) or Tito Murphy’s (for Mexican) or Le Rivage ($60 3-course pre-fixe menu) at 5/5:30 for a leisurely dinner before your show.

2.          Comedy show- We love Comedy Cellar in the village! The later shows are the better ones. Make sure you reserve your tickets a couple of weeks in advance. You never know which famous SNL celeb or comedian might show up!

3.          Walk all of Manhattan- I haven’t done this one yet, but it’s on my list! Start on the Upper West Side and walk down all of Manhattan until you hit Battery Park. Stop along the way at all the best restaurants in the neighborhoods you pass. Or just take a regular walk! One of my favorite things to do with Alex! We love to walk or bike along the East River in the park. We also love to walk the Brooklyn Bridge during all seasons. New York is a walking city. Sometimes we just walk loops around Manhattan unintentionally, but it’s a great way to explore and find new spots. Make sure you have comfortable walking shoes on!

4.          Central Park picnic- a great way to spend time with friends: bring a big blanket, snacks, drinks and a football and hang out on Sheep Meadow. Or find a secluded spot under a tree for you and your boo for a romantic date where you feel like you have escaped NYC.

5.          Governors Island- if you want to feel like your miles away from Manhattan head to Governors Island. It’s officially my favorite place in all of New York City. It’s a $3 ferry ride (book in advance online) from Battery Park and you can spend all day walking around and exploring this amazing NYC park. We usually bring food and have a picnic, but there are food trucks and food carts to grab a bite. There are lots of playground for kids too. You can rent CitiBikes or walk around. There are also two national monuments (with park rangers) on the island. Governors Island also has the best views of Manhattan and the Statute of Liberty and I’m obsessed. It’s also now open all year long! It really has it all and what’s more fun than exploring something new?!

6.          Chelsea Market- pick four different restaurants/shops for each course: appetizer, main course, side and dessert. And add a drink if you want! Recently we did this and had dumplings to start, then tacos, a sushi bowl and donuts for dessert!

7.          Farmers Market- 14th Street Union Square has a great one. Honestly, every neighborhood has one. So pick a neighborhood you want to visit and Google “farmers market.”

8.          Wine Bar- The Immigrant is one of my favorites. It is a very intimate place, great for a romantic date. 

9.          Visit a museum- any museum! There are so many to choose from: The Met, MOMA, The Whitney, The Frick, The Museum of Natural History, Guggenheim, USS Intrepid, The 911 Museum, New York Transit Museum, Madame Tussauds, Museum of Ice Cream (which I would not recommend), South Street Seaport Museum, Ellis Island, etc. 

10.        Cook dinner together- This one is probably the most unNew York related date-idea, but, I am always going out to dinner in the city, and it gets old after a while. For someone that hates to cook, cooking as a team always is so much fun! Or if you don’t want to actually cook, make a charcuterie board and grab a bottle of wine.
