Going too far away and secluded places is not for everybody. Not all couples can imagine themselves tucked in an island or resort far away, doing nothing else aside from enjoying each other’s company and relaxing. What these newlyweds are looking for is a city retreat and they need not look far to find one, because there’s the Big Apple.
New York City is perfect for honeymooners because of the many luxurious places to stay and the many things that can be done and enjoyed by a couple. Here are a few of the top places to visit when honeymooning in New York.
Where to Stay
There are so many hotels to choose from, but you can narrow it down to two top choices. If you’re staying uptown, with all the upscale malls, shops, and restaurants, you’d want to stay in the Mandarin Oriental. It’s a posh place to stay and sits above the famous Columbus Circle. You even have a spectacular view of Central Park.
If you prefer the downtown area because of the many nightlife options, then staying at the Mondrian Soho is the way to go. It’s new and hip, perfect for newlyweds to enjoy their honeymoon. Don’t worry, it’s not too hip and vibrant that you won’t enjoy an intimate time together.
Where to Go
This question really isn’t all that hard when you take into consideration a lively city such as New York. This city literally doesn’t sleep! For starters, it’s always great to visit a landmark attraction such as the Met or the Metropolitan Museum of Art. You won’t just enjoy the famous works of art, you can head up to the rooftop and enjoy a drink with your loved one as well.
In a big city such as New York, you just can’t help but feel the need for some nature. That’s why a visit to Central Park or The Highline will meet that need perfectly. Go for a casual stroll hand in hand with your partner, soak in the sun, or go for a picnic. Everybody does it, so don’t be shy.
Where to Eat
New York City is a smorgasbord when it comes to food! The people in this city just love to eat and they’ve got the best places for you to try!
There’s nothing like trying the Cadillac burgers over at PJ Clarke’s. Your New York City stay just won’t be complete without trying their specialties. You can also visit Eataly where you get a taste of quality Italian food served by none other than celebrity chef, Mario Batali.
For a more memorable experience, you can even try the Starlight Dinner cruise with the Hornblower Yachts. It goes past the beautiful landmarks that New York has to offer, including the Statue of Liberty.
Where to Drink
You’d want to wash down what you’ve just eaten at Eataly’s and PJ Clarke. One of the best and hottest places to visit for a drink with your loved one is the Bemelmans Bar. When you drink in this place, you not only get to try wonderful concoctions, you also enjoy the whole experience. You might even spot a celebrity or two.
Where to Shop
Your New York City honeymoon won’t be complete without some shopping! If it’s not part of your itinerary, your wife will be asking you to include it. Take her to the Columbus Circle and Fifth Avenue for some upscale shopping. Don’t worry, it’ll just be a once in a lifetime thing anyway.
Where to Party
Sex and the City has put the Meatpacking District in the map. It’s now one of the liveliest places in New York City to visit for a night out. Enjoy the nightlife with your partner here. It’ll definitely be a wonderful experience for you both.
Where to Relax
With all that New York has to offer, you better have some time to relax and do so together apart from sleeping in your hotel room. The Spa at the Trump Soho is a highly recommended place. They even have special packages for couples and services that you won’t get to see anywhere else.
