The Best NYC Date Ideas to Spark Romance This Fall
Whale watching, tandem bike rides in Central Park, food festivals, and more.
With the carefree days of summer now officially behind us, next on our priority list: staying as warm and cozy as possible throughout the crisper season.
Along with rib-sticking meals from exciting fall restaurant openings (expect projects from industry heavyweights behind favs like Carbone, Dame, Dhamaka, and Raoul’s), it’s also the ideal time of year to swipe right to dating, because chunky sweaters alone won’t keep us snuggled up at night.
For autumn, we’ve rounded up plenty of ways for you and your special someone to embrace the romance of fall in full force. From whale watching and tandem bike rides to food festivals and spooky pop-ups, here are the best places to go on a date in the upcoming months.
Whether you want a leisurely ride or to embark on an in-depth tour of Central Park, Bike Rental Central Park offers bike, e-scooter, and e-bike rentals as well as free helmets, locks, and maps to cycle around sights like the Conservatory Garden, Bethesda Fountain, and more. And if you’re feeling particularly intimate, opt for a tandem bike and gaze at the changing leaves with your loved one. You can also take bike tours through Wheel Fun Rentals, which offers bike rentals as well as map guides featuring famous landmarks for both Prospect Park in Brooklyn and Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens.
