Even if you are not a fan, baseball is the best spectator sport for the uninterested-the weather's chill, the food is fried and the game is slow enough to enjoy taking pictures and chatting. With a plethora of NYC teams-including The New York Yankees, The New York Mets, and the Brooklyn Cyclones-you can tan while you day-drink some beer with your date.

Try a one-two punch of hiking and whiskey tasting.


Ron Swanson would wholeheartedly approve. Travel outside of the city limits to hike in the Shawangunk Mountains for six miles, which should be easy peasy for any self-respecting New Yorker. Following your hike, you and your partner will go to New York's only public distillery where you'll sample whiskey and vodka to quench that post-hike thirst.
