If you’re planning on spending New Years Eve in New York City with your significant other, there are plenty of ways to turn the event into a romantic outing.  First off, make it a full day event.  Pack a picnic brunch – make sure to include mimosas – and head off to Central Park to the perfect spot for your romantic picnic.  Scope the park out ahead of time so you know where you’re headed.  A few suggestions are the Great Field, Sheep Meadow and East Green.  After you’re finished eating, head to the Boathouse for a romantic gondola ride in Central Park’s Lake.  If it’s your first trip to the city that never sleeps, cozy up to your lover in a carriage ride or stroll through the park on foot and check out the fountain and the imagine mosaic.

After your romantic NYC brunch, catch a cab to Rockefeller center and join the couples and families skating around the rink.  Make sure to take in the golden garnishes and famous Rockefeller Christmas tree as you hold hands and skate around the most celebrated ice skating rink in the city.  After you’ve worked up an appetite skating, head to the closest coffee shop for a latte, tea, pastry, or whatever strikes your fancy.  After your snack, head back to your apartment, hotel, etc. to get ready for your big night out.

Make sure you’re prepared for your NYC New Years Eve kiss by getting tickets to a romantic cruise on the Temptress Yacht NYC, where you can watch the fireworks from a distance while taking in a panoramic view of the city and dance the night away on the yacht’s dance floor.  Or if you’d rather stay on the island, purchase your tickets to Eden Rooftop in Times Square and watch the ball drop in style. Also Check out Half Moon New Year's Eve Party Cruise.
