Fun Weekend Date Idea in the City

Together, you and your man can browse the windows (Christmas isn’t that far away, right?) and check out the unique boutiques. You never know what treasures you’ll find! Whether it’s a hand-crafted scarf for her or a festive tie for him, boutiques always have the best and most unique items for reasonable prices. Pick out something that incorporates the fall season. Stick to burnt oranges, exuberant reds, and shades of yellow and gold. Now, you have a new accessory for that fall wardrobe you’ve been dying to debut — perfect as you plan your next weekend date idea!

Parks are also a great place to find city-inspired entertainment. You may run into a sketch artist while you’re wandering around. Have them draw up an animation of you and your honey. You can strike a silly pose, stick your tongue out, or even make the moment romantic with a kissing picture. This way, the two of you will have a fun way to commemorate your relationship and love and document the fun you had on your date.

You and your sweetheart can also enjoy the people of the city. Stop and watch the street performers and even volunteer to participate. New York City is known for their creative street dancers that incorporate their audience into their acts, so don’t be shy! Doing things out of your comfort zone is a great piece of dating advice, and you might surprise yourself and your partner by unexpectedly jumping in the middle of the dance circle.

Indulge in the flavors of the season with a Pumpkin Spice Latte and split a warmed cinnamon-chocolate croissant with your love as you tour the city. Order each other a cup of coffee or specialty drink from a street cafe and give each other funny names that include some of your inside jokes. When the barista calls out “Mr. Snores A Lot,” you’re bound to get a crowd reaction. As you’re holding hands and walking along the sidewalks, take in the feeling that the fall season is all about.

New York City also boasts an impressive number of famous couples who call the city home. While walking around and enjoying each other’s company, you and your honey might run into some celebrities, including Taylor Swift, Sarah Jessica Parker, or even Jay-Z and Beyonce. If you don’t want to approach them, snap some celebrity photos as proof to show your friends after this weekend date idea.
