Experiences in NYC to Make You Swoon

January 31st, 2020 | Dining

Once February approaches, the anticipation of what Valentine’s Day might have in store for us is electrifying. This holiday may not be for everyone, but if you’re visiting New York City at this time of the year, it would be a mistake to not join in the festivities. After all, NYC has been the setting for romantic plays, comedies, dramas and novels for many reasons.

Love in Times Square

Turning just around the corner from the Manhattan at Times Square on February 14th you’ll find vow renewals (6:00 pm to 6:20 pm), and weddings and surprise proposals (11:00 am to 2:00 pm) taking place at Times Square, Broadway between 46th and 47th Streets.

Some might think it corny, but when thousands of people from all over the world celebrate love and happiness together, it’s hard not to feel intoxicated by it.

Walk around Central Park’s Most Romantic Spots

Featured in countless movies and TV series, Central Park is key to New York’s romance scene. Its bridges, secluded pathways and stunning architectural accents offer plenty of opportunities for picture perfect moments and intimate spots - even in winter. Bow Bridge, known as the most romantic bridge in Central Park, Ladies’ Pavilion and Bethesda Terrace are great spots to cuddle with your significant other.

Visit Famous Romantic Sites

Neighborhoods like Greenwich Village, Upper West Side and Upper East Side have their share of beautiful tree-lined streets on which to walk hand-in-hand with your better half. In fact, these neighborhoods have been featured in tons of movies and novels about New York. Take a tour of popular movie locations or explore the best sights for bookworms
