5 Spring Date Ideas in NYC

Spring is here and you know what that means! The birds are out and the bees are abuzz in the big apple. Warmer weather and longer days mean love is in the air, so it’s time to say goodbye to those indoor cuffing season haunts, break out the short sleeves, and hit the streets with your better half. Here are our top five date ideas for spring in New York.

Explore New York’s Rooftops

When the weather elevates, take the elevator! Rooftops are an excellent place to cozy up with that special someone. Whether you’re on vacation or a lifelong resident, the New York skyline never ceases to inspire. With 317 mesmerizing skyscrapers amid an interconnected family of sparkling waterways, no movie can hold a candle to the living, breathing modern day wonder that is Manhattan. 

230 Fifth and Skylark serve up delectable drinks with unbeatable views. Gansevoort Rooftop and The William Vale are two of the city’s chicest elevated swimming pools. Le Bain and Mister Purple are top picks for the clubbier side of things. Top of the Rock and The Edge are among the holy grail of New York observation decks. 

Get Your Park On

Sometimes a small dose of Mother Nature is all the doctor ordered. For New Yorkers seeking an escape from the chaos of the big city, green space is a healthy remedy. With 29,000 acres of parkland across the five boroughs, there’s no shortage of pastoral settings for lovebirds to explore.

Rent a kayak or pedal boat from the LeFrak Center at Lakeside to explore Prospect Park’s stunningly serene lake. Break out the popcorn and a blanket at Fort Tryon Park’s movie nights. Flushing Meadows’ Pitch and Putt is the finest mini golf in Queens. Of course, Central Park is unquestionably New York’s most popular date spot. With its winding trails, old-world arches, and enchanting tapestry of colors, it feels like a rom-com as soon as you enter.

Join a Meetup Group

Who says you have to be alone on a date?

Meetup launched in 2002 and continues to grow in popularity every year. While the game-changing social gathering app is ubiquitous across the globe, its New York offerings are a treasure trove of events and activities based around any interest known to mankind.

The best part? Most meetup groups are free!

Outdoor dining

Did you know 800 languages are spoken on any given day in New York? That equates to around 800 types of food to try. There’s no doubt some of the city’s most famous eateries are found indoors, but when Spring hits, the streets are truly the place to be.

Every year on the first weekend after Mother’s Day, the Ninth Avenue International Food Festival comes to town. The oldest and largest continuing food fest in the city, you’ll be able to sample snacks from virtually anywhere in the world. 

Meanwhile, nothing is more quintessentially New York than a table for two under the stars. Palma on Cornelia Street serves up devine Italian masterpieces in a sun-washed garden.
