7 Romantic Fall Dates In New York City You Haven't Been On Yet

Date Night Ideas: Best Fall Dates In New York City

From tree climbing to wine tasting, here are some of the best dates to go on in the Big Apple.

One of the biggest perks about living in such an amazing city is that NYC residents have access to so many romantic, beautiful activities they can do with their partners all year long.

From tree climbing to wine tasting, here are some of the absolute best ones to do this season.


Ride Jane's Carousel
For a lovely, nostalgia-filled date, check out Jane's Carousel, a gorgeously restored carousel residing in Brooklyn Bride Park. You two can ride together, listening to lovely, historic music while holding hands and enjoying the crisp fall air.


See Romeo & Juliet
One of the most beloved plays of all time is on Broadway right now, featuring Condola Rashad and Orlando Bloom. If you and your partner love this classic work and want to set your hearts racing, snag tickets before they're gone!


Explore The World Via Wine
Do you both love wine and travel? Check out Around The World In 80 Sips, an event that lets you taste test loads of wine (while munching on snacks, naturally) from all over the world.


Climb A Tree
What's better than admiring the season's colors in the beautiful trees at the New York Botanical Garden's Thain Family Forest? Being in them, of course!

When you sign up for the Recreational Tree Climbing Workshop, you and your partner can climb to the top of the large London Plane tree, where you'll be able to see the George Washington Bridge, animals and fall foliage up close and personal.
Laugh Until It Hurts At The New York Comedy Festival
Take a break from Parks and Rec re-runs and give your abs a laughter-fueled workout at the four-day festival filled with hilarious standup, improv, sketch, variety shows and discussions across 23 venues in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. The NYCF runs from November 6–10, and with headliners like Jerry Seinfeld, Kathy Griffin and Larry David at some of NYC's go-to comedy clubs, you'll have no problem finding an event that'll keep you both giggling for days.
Get Closer Over Live Music
Concerts in Central Park and Hudson River Park may be long gone, but starting in November, you can cuddle up with your honey over some romantic New York jazz, funk and blues on Sunday evenings at The National's National Sessions, a free event from 6pm to 10pm.
Take Autumn Snapshots
Take advantage of the season's gorgeous colors before they're gone. Take a camera (even if it's just a disposable one) with you for a walk, then explore the city and take photos of one another with fall-related things like pumpkins, Thanksgiving treats and red, gold and orange leaves.
