There’s nothing in the world as exciting as meeting that one person who you really, really want to impress and show a good time. However, if you’re someone who struggles with coming up date ideas in NYC that isn’t just going to some bar or restaurant and having drinks, then we’ve got 5 great options that’ll make your date swoon!
1. Ice Skating in Central Park
Get in touch with your romantic side by taking your date to Central park to go ice skating. Not only will you be able to hold hands while on the ice, you could even get a hot chocolate and snuggle together afterward. If you aren’t the best ice skater in the world, you’ll be able to lean on your date for support. Heck, you could even pretend to need their support, just as long as you can hold your date close!
2. Go Rock Climbing
Maybe both you and your date prefer to be a little more active and a walk through the park simply won’t cut it. Why not go to any one of the rock climbing venues in and around the city? You have Dumbo Boulders under the Manhattan Bridge, Brooklyn Boulders, and the Climbing Gym at Manhattan Health Club to name a few!
3. Stroll through the Central Park Zoo
Dating an animal lover? Plan a trip to the Central Park Zoo and check out the menagerie of animals. You could even watch the zoo keepers feed the adorable sea lions if you’re in the vicinity around 11:30 am, 1:30 pm, or 3:30 pm. If your date has children who you are trying appeal to, then you could also check out the Tisch Children’s Zoo where you’ll be able to see goats, potbellied pigs, and the only cow in the city!
4. Attend a Cooking Class at Sur la Table
This is the perfect date option if you want to hone (or show off) your cooking skills. You’ll be able to learn new recipes from a variety of different culinary delights. For example, you could take part in Healthy Mediterranean Cooking, learn how to make the perfect pizza, or just learn Knife skills. Learn more about the classes offered here.
5. Lower Inhibitions at Slipper Room
Depending on the nature of your relationship and the mood you want to set for the rest of the evening, the Slipper Room very well may put you and your date in the mood for something a little more tantalizing and slightly risqué. Though the venue is small, you can bet that you’ll always have a great view of the show. You’ll be able to see aerial performers, singers, comedians, dancers, and ladies and gents performing sideshow and circus acts.
Trying to come up with the perfect date idea in New York City can be a little stressful because you want to plan something that’ll be fun and impress your date. It’s important to remember that New York City is full of great date options – you just have to step outside of the usual dinner and a movie mind set and be willing to explore the city!
