For those who enjoy fine dining, high fashion, elegant hotels and non-stop excitement, New York City is the perfect honeymoon destination. The only problem is trying to fit everything in! The convenient subway system and handy cabs make getting around easy and affordable.
There is no shortage of good hotels in NYC. Before selecting your location, however, choose the neighbourhood you want to be near. For example, if you’d like to be close to Manhattan’s Financial Disctrict, the Ritz-Carlton, Battery Park offers luxurious rooms and an amazing view of the Statue of Liberty. If you’d rather get away from the hustle and bustle, try the Upper West Side. This posh area is a quiet neighbourhood and On The Ave is a reasonably priced hotel with a great rooftop patio. To be closer to more tourist attractions, head to Midtown Manhattan. Artistic couples will be more at home in SoHo or Tribeca.
NYC has ethnic cuisines to suit every taste. Chinese, Thai, Japanese, French – the possibilities are endless. If you’re in the mood for a home-style Italian dinner, head to Carmine’s, which serves generous portions and delicious desserts. For Mediteranean, Isabella’s offers exquisite appetizers and a romantic sidewalk cafe. Plan ahead and make reservations. Famous eateries, such as The Russian Tea Room, Tavern on the Green and The Four Seasons, can book weeks in advance.
New York caters to shopaholics. From haute couture to vintage, you’ll be sure to find what you’re looking for. Browse Fifth Avenue for well-known shops like FAO Schwartz, Tiffany & Co. and Saks. The Village offers vintage and consignment shops, and Chinatown is full of street vendors with unique items. Also, be sure to pop into the Macy’s flagship store at Herald Square.
