Play Tourist for a Day
If you’ve never been to New York City, it’s essential to visit the most well-known landmarks. Take a day to play tourist around the city and see what makes the “Big Apple” so grand. Our must-see stops include the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, One World Observatory, and Washington Square Park.
Enjoy the City’s Many Parks
New York may be a lively city, but you can get a taste of the outdoors at the many parks throughout the town. Central Park offers plenty of grass to sprawl out on and has great places to explore within including the Central Park Zoo, Kerbs Boathouse, and Shakespeare Garden. Some of our other favorite city parks are Brooklyn Bridge Park, Prospect Park and The High Line.
See the City by Night
The “city that never sleeps” boasts plenty of night time activities for honeymooning couples. For an upbeat night, catch a comedy show at the Comedy Cellar, grab a drink or two at the city’s finest bars, or dance the night away at Brooklyn’s dance clubs. Wind down the night with a walk along the Hudson River or see the city from above from Top of the Rock Observation Deck.
Taste the Town
New York City shows its diverse personality through its cuisine. Around every corner lies a culinary delight and there’s certainly no shortage of flavor. For casual eateries, we recommend Tompkins Square Bagels, Katz Delicatessen, Momofuku Noodle Bar, and of course trying the many food carts around the city. For a fine dining experience, be sure to plan in advance to visit The Beatrice Inn and The NoMad Restaurant.
Break away from the city life for a day and make your way to Catskills, NY. With acres and acres of land, there are countless opportunities to explore the outdoors. Cast a line down New York’s angling mecca, hike through the scenic Catskill Mountains, or see the region’s beautiful cascading waterfalls. For a more relaxed atmosphere, enjoy one of the many farm-to-table restaurants offering an array of fresh cooking.
