Washington Square Park – George Washington Monument

This park has everything.  Beautiful Monument? Check.  Large Fountain?   Check.  Performance artists? double check.  You and your date can soak in the sights and there is almost always some sort of political movement or performance going on.  There are puppeteers and bubble blowers.  Dancers and musicians.  Maybe try your hand against some of the chess experts in the park.

Sit by the fountain or go and sit in the grass and relax.  You are sure to have interesting things to see and talk about as you enjoy Washington Square Park.  Park Website   This park is lively at any time of day and is open til 1 AM.  The people watching here is amazing!
