1. Day in the Park
Because Central Park is romantic any given Day. You can start your day with a late breakfast in the Boat House. If you're lucky, you will snag one of the tables overlooking the lake. If not extremely hungry multiple Le Pain's scattered around the park is another viable option for snacks. You can also get wine to warm up your insides if the weather is too brisk. Renting a boat is always a great activity for couple's in the park. For an hour, you can enjoy the serenity of each other engulfed by the nature around you. Don't forget to head to the Bow Bridge and Bethesda Fountain for a romantic picture or two. The Met is always a great spot to wrap up a romantic day in Central Park.
