Can you imagine a more romantic place to spend Valentine’s Day than New York City? We can’t, and that’s why we’ve prepared this rundown of just a few of the many romantic adventures you’ll find here. From iconic carriage rides to unexpected museum tours, we know you’ll find something you love.
Profess Your Love in Times Square
Do you want to make a grandiose proclamation of love on Valentine’s Day? Then do it in Times Square. They’ll be hosting Love in Times Square, where special proposals, weddings and vow renewals will take place in front of the sculpture Window to the Heart.
Recreate Your Favorite Romantic Film
We know that New Yorkers don’t necessarily love to line up at popular tourist destinations on holidays, but we think you can make an exception for the Empire State Building. If you or your loved one is a fan of romantic movies, then you must make your way up to one of the observation decks. While you’re there, why not recreate a scene from Sleepless in Seattle or An Affair to Remember? You’ll certainly make it a Valentine’s Day to remember if you do.
Take a Carriage Ride in Central Park
It never hurts to do something traditionally associated with romance on Valentine’s Day. Which is why a carriage ride in Central Park is a sure bet. Carriage rides vary in length from 20 minutes to two hours and can be customized to suit your needs. A professional photographer will be with you, capturing your special moments. Your photos will be digitally delivered a few days later.
Embark on a Romantic Dinner Cruise
Take to the water this February 14th for a magical and romantic cruise. Enjoy dinner, sparkling wine, dancing and plenty of photo opportunities with your special someone. Many cruise lines offer special packages for the holiday. Hudson’s at Pier 81 and Hornblower Cruises and Events are two local favorites.
See NYC From Above
Are you feeling a little daring? Then whisk your date off for a special helicopter ride over the city. FLYNYON is offering a Love is in the Air NYC Valentine’s Day package that’s perfect for couples. In addition to the spectacular flight, you’ll get chocolate covered strawberries, champagne, a flight simulator session, and entry into the exclusive VIP Valentine’s Day Lounge.

The Museum of the City of New York has several events planned. Go on a love themed scavenger hunt around the museum, groove to some live acapella love jams, or take an after-hours tour of the exhibit New York at Its Core.
