Location: Central Park, Manhattan
I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Halloween weekend. On our last day in the city, we decided to take it easy and spend some alone time because up to that day, we had been truly non-stop attending several events. So before going to lunch, we opted to visit Central Park. We couldn't think of a better and romantic venue for an afternoon date. With the park boasting a showy display of fall foliage, it was truly spectacular and a sight to see. But, we mostly came to see the Bow Bridge. Would you believe that after living in NYC for two years and multiple visits back to the city, I actually have never seen the bridge until this day? I don't know how and why, but I just seemed to have missed it.
Bow bridge is probably the most recognized and visited bridge at Central Park. It is easy to see why. Rowboats bobbed on the tranquil lake with the upper west side buildings peeking behind the trees as a backdrop. If you have never been and this looks familiar to you, well that is because it has been featured countless times on films. Remember Keeping the Faith and Maid of Honor?
Bow bridge was beautiful, timeless and romantic and gathered New Yorkers and tourists alike . I've read that it is the most popular place for a marriage proposal and with at least one happening everyday. Although, there wasn't one there that day, there were plenty of lovers, young and old that gathered on and around the bridge.
So, the next time you're considering a venue for an afternoon date, you don't need to travel to NYC. Just think of nearby bridges around you. My husband and I came and did just that in Dallas as featured (here). Not only was it romantic but it was free too!
