Big Apple, big honeymoon: Here's where to eat, sleep, party, and shop, in a town that's buzzing 24/7.

Not for newlyweds who want to spend their days lazing by a pool, Manhattan makes for a very different kind of island honeymoon. New York City is a nonstop adventure—we're not going to lie, you'll have to dodge a few taxicabs—but it's also a mecca for fine dining, art, culture, and even relaxation. (The decadent spas are in a class all their own.) There is so much to do even native New Yorkers can't hit all the hotspots, so we've assembled a can't-miss list to get your city honeymoon rolling.

You'll start uptown: Elegant and posh, with brownstone lined side streets and Manhattan's most revered museums (The Frick, The Met, the American Museum of Natural History), the northern half of Manhattan is great for a couple who's into the classic, not the über-trendy.
