Looking for romantic things to do in New York City? Here are a few suggestions from Dr. Mike Zhang, a New York travel expert at Smart Destinations.
Empire State Building – The Empire State Building is hands-down the world’s most famous skyscraper. Take a ride to the top of this art deco icon with your special someone for a panoramic view of the city that will leave you breathless. No wonder the 1993 American romantic comedy film Sleepless in Seattle chose the Empire State Building as the climactic meeting between two love birds.
Metropolitan Museum of Art – This famous museum houses more than two million works of art from around the world. And while it may take a lifetime to fully appreciate its vast collections, this is one heck of a way to spend a romantic afternoon.
Twilight Cruise NYC – As the sun sets, relax and get lost in the magic of a twilight cruise. Watch iconic structures slowly light up the skyline, and you’ll feel there is no place better to start a romantic evening. And, you would be right.
Top of the Rock – The best place to take in the sweeping majesty of New York City? The Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Plaza. This art deco skyscraper boasts a six-level observation deck located a jaw-dropping 800-plus feet above the street. It’s an experience you’ll never forget and definitely should share with your loved one.
