If you are ever traveling in New York City or live in the American City of Lights, there’s an excessive amount of things to do, see, eat, and explore. New York is one of those places that keeps you busy but effectively gets you to want to keep up with what’s next. 

Broadway shows, museums & galleries galore, restaurants everywhere you turn, underground nightclubs, picnics in Central Park, literally, etc. The list can go on forever when it comes to the things you can do in this city.

When the time has come to take that special someone out on a date, one would ponder and really scratch their head with the question, “where and what will I do with my bae?”

There are plenty, but what places stand out? What is there to do with a place like New York that has an abundance of multifarious activities?

Here are the top places you can take your bae on a date in the Empire State: 

1. Go-Karting on Ice (New York)

Oh yes! It really does exist. A heart-pumping, smile-breaking, thrill of driving on an icy rink! The perfect date with that special someone, where you can have some competitive fun, and test yourself. Practice navigating a go-kart in an ice rink. A team of experts will guide you with some tips on how to glide through corners and know how to drive on ice. If you dress to impress, play a role of any kind (just like Super Mario Kart characters), you and your bae can win a prize! This event is set for May 6th through May 8th, so hurry with purchasing those tickets for that real-life Mario Bros date.

One of the most beautiful places to go sightseeing in New York City to date and literally for a sky-high date! City Climb at Edge not only has Edge, a 1,131 feet high sightseeing of all of Manhattan’s glory and the Empire State Building, but a climb out of your comfort zone journey. City Climb is known to be the highest “open-air building ascent” in the world! As a climber, you and your date will scale the outside of a skyscraper more than 1,200 feet above the ground, as you can lean out and look below from the highest outdoor space in NYC. After you’re done with your climbing a 1,200 feet skyscraper, enjoy your feet on the grounds of Edge and sip on a glass of champagne to toast the accomplishment. 

Tickets to Edge start from $36

5. Movies with a View

The “Movies with a View” event at Brooklyn Bridge Park  is one of the perfect places to picnic while watching a film on Pier 1 Harbor View Lawn. No need to spend all that money to sit in a dark, cold room, with overpriced snacks, food, and drink. Couples night just became a romantic-laidback night out with harbor views, food stands galore, and Brooklyn Bridge views.  Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy has a 4-week limited run on Thursday evenings in August 2022! Every year, there is a different theme of film categories. You’ll know the films that will be presented ahead of time for dealers’ choice on their website. With Smorgasburg providing food and drinks all night long, along the Pier 1 promenade.  From pizza, street food from different cultures, ice cream, oysters, and jerk chicken. You can grab a glass of wine or pick your choice of beer. 

Price: Depends on the food and beverages you purchase. 

New York City is a diverse landscape of five boroughs; each location bringing unique experiences, different views, foods, drinks, and memories to reminisce having with the lover in your life.
