This classic New York experience has been a local favorite for over 95 years. On Valentine’s Day, enjoy The Russian Tea Room as they'll have a special prix-fixe menu to celebrate this special day.

Go Ice Skating

What’s more romantic than lacing up your skates and twirling around the ice with your partner? NYC has no shortage of skating rinks all over the city. So find your perfect spot and enjoy this beloved seasonal tradition.

See the Stunning Views at Edge

NYC’s highest observation deck is the perfect place to take in the city’s views and sip on some champagne over 1,000 feet in the air. Don’t miss this magical and memorable experience at NY Edge.

Valentine’s Day Cruise

Maybe city views from the water are more your speed. There are multiple Valentine’s Day Cruises happening to take advantage of. A couple of romantic dinner cruises are available: Valentine's New York Signature Dinner Cruise and Valentine's Bateaux New York Premier Plus Dinner Cruise, both through City Cruises.
