Are you not a fan of extended beach vacations? Would you rather spend your time exploring a city? If so, New York City is the perfect place to spend your honeymoon. From its vibrant nightlife to its world-class restaurants, museums, and shopping, New York City is the ultimate honeymoon destination for a city-loving couple. 

New York City is a place where memories are made. Watch the sunset over the Hudson River during a stroll on the High Line. Toast to your new life from a rooftop bar in Midtown. Celebrate your love with a Broadway musical or a ballet performance at Lincoln Center. 

New York City is also the star of dozens of rom-coms, from Breakfast at Tiffany’s and When Harry Met Sally to West Side Story and Sleepless in Manhattan. You can even try recreating some iconic scenes from these movies on your honeymoon. 

No matter what you like to do — and no matter if you’re a fan of rom-coms or not — New York City will have something romantic for you. 

Here’s our guide to planning the perfect New York City honeymoon. 

Choose a Time


You don’t have to plan your wedding around your preferred honeymoon dates, but keep in mind that there are some times to visit New York City that are better than others. 

Though New York is fascinating and full of myriad experiences year-round (check out our list of things to do in the city), spring and fall are generally better times to visit — there are fewer tourists than in the summertime, and the weather is pleasantly mild. 

Also, make sure that you consider what activities you’d like to do when planning your New York City honeymoon. Do you and your partner want to ice skate together? Go on a river cruise? Weather will play a part in these activities, so plan accordingly.

Book a Honeymoon Package

So you’ve chosen the city and you’ve set a date for your wedding and for the honeymoon. That means it’s time to book the honeymoon suite of your dreams (but hopefully not à la Jake from Season 1 of The White Lotus). Many hotels offer special honeymoon packages that offer amenities specific for newlyweds — so do your research to find the best out there. 

Here at the Concorde Hotel, we also offer a Honeymoon Package, listed on our Offers page. The amenities include breakfast at our in-house Cafe Bonsaii, breathtaking views of the city, and late checkout, all in our luxurious One Bedroom Suite or Terrace Suite, based on availability. Bonsaii is a conceptual, nature-inspired restaurant with a romantic ambience and elevated classic dishes with a Spanish flair. If you’re a foodie, our Honeymoon Package may be right for you.

Arrange Transportation

Start your honeymoon off right with luxury transportation from La Guardia or JFK. There are dozens of limo and chauffeur services available in New York City, such as Blacklane, Sedanz, and NYC Platinum Transport. These services will take you to and from any of New York City’s surrounding airports and drop you off exactly where you need to go. Pull up to your honeymoon hotel in style, and arrange a limo or private car service. 

There are other options for transportation to and from your honeymoon hotel, of course — such as a classic yellow New York taxicab (another rom-com fixture, if that’s up your alley). No matter what you choose, it’ll make your honeymoon much less stressful if your transportation is pre-arranged.

Make an Itinerary

Now: the best part of a honeymoon in New York City — deciding what to do. If it’s going to be your first time in the city, we recommend activities like visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Central Park, Fifth Avenue, Times Square and the Empire State Building. You can find our full list of must-see year-round attractions in the city here

However, if you’re a New York City local looking for more unique, romantic things to do on your honeymoon, fear not — we have recommendations for that too. Here are the eight most romantic things for couples to do in New York City. Other great places to visit that are not on that list are the High Line in Hudson Yards, the secluded Met Cloisters uptown, and SoHo (for the boutiques). Before you head out on your honeymoon, make sure you have at least a rough idea of things you want to do — unless you’re planning to stay in the hotel the entire time. 

Book Some Experiences Ahead of Time

From dinner reservations to Broadway tickets, it’s best to book some experiences ahead of time, especially for New York City shows. If you’re seeing the Philharmonic or the New York City Ballet perform at Lincoln Center, or if you want to watch Hamilton or Moulin Rouge! The Musical, book ahead of time. 

It’s also important to make restaurant reservations at least a few weeks in advance. Most New York City restaurants are on Open Table, an easy online restaurant reservation platform. We also have a list of eleven amazing restaurants in the city, to make narrowing down your choices a little easier.
