When it comes to romance, New York has all other cities beat. What other place in the world is such a cultural hub, or has such an assortment of romantic restaurants to choose from? Exactly. An anniversary in NYC is the place to be, with its endless opportunities for romantic outings. Whether you want to celebrate with a night out to the theater or with live music, you’ll find a way to make the date a memorable one. Let’s have a look at some excellent anniversary date ideas that should remind your spouse just why they fell in love with you!

Visit the Lincoln Center

The Lincoln Center plays host to the David H. Koch Theater, which puts out an incredible production of the New York City Ballet every spring, winter, and fall season. They also host their iconic production of The Nutcracker every December and will have American Ballet

Theater performing in October. If you’ve got an anniversary coming up at these times, you should definitely consider splurging on a couple of tickets to one of these splendid productions. Whether you opt to see a newer work or a traditional production like Swan Lake, you can be sure to have an unforgettable time. Follow it up with a late dinner at a romantic restaurant, and you’ll be all set!

Go for a Helicopter Ride

There’s nothing to whet the romance like a little adrenaline! Take a helicopter ride with the love of your life to see a side of New York you’ve never seen before! Observe Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, and New York’s fabulous bridges among others as you sit hand in hand with your partner. It’ll be something far out of the ordinary for sure!

Renew your vows!

Renewing your vows is an incredibly romantic and heartfelt way of celebrating your union, and few places are better equipped to be the venue for this than Central Park. All you have to do is apply for a permit, and then decide whether you want to say “I do” all over again in the Conservatory Garden or the Cop Cot. Plus, you can have Central Park management handle the flowers, music, and photography so that you don’t have to fuss over the details at all.

Go for the Red Wine Treatment at Aire Ancient Baths

Drinking wine with your partner is passé. Bathe in it together instead! At the Aire Ancient Baths in Tribeca, you and your partner get to soak in an exhilarating batch of wine as you receive facial and scalp massages. That is followed up by an hour-long couple’s massage, and then a ninety-minute session through four pools and the spa’s steam room. 

Dine at a romantic restaurant

Like we said, few places have a greater assortment of restaurants than NYC. Try out the River Café or Zenkichi for a beautifully sensuous dinner experience. For an extra romantic dinner, you’ll want to try a high-end place like Eleven Madison Park or Le Bernardin.
