It's Fall, and with the colder weather comes a lot less incentive to go outside to do things, especially if you and your partner are at the stage in your relationship where you can just hang out and
binge watch a ridiculous amount of episodes of Scandal wearing exclusively sweatpants do nothing together. Though, it's good for even the laziest of couples to get out and have some fun outside of the comfort of their own home every so often.
Luckily, these things to do in the city are the perfect chilled out yet still fun spots and activities that will appeal to any and every kind of lazy couple. So change out of those sweatpants and get ready for a good time!
