New York City is for lovers. There are myriads of songs that express love, both young and old, that develop on city sidewalks and in eateries around the city. Countless films have showcased romantic moments centered around NYC landmarks and locations, so it seems to stand that we can create our own love stories on the streets of the city.
In the colder months, it’s easy to picture a couple huddled close as they walk along streets, cuddled under blankets in a horse-drawn carriage, or enjoying the skyline from a viewpoint. Romantic tours are great, no matter what time of year. With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, it’s the perfect opportunity to create a wonderful evening to remember with a romantic tour in one of the most beloved cities.
VIP Premium Experience at the Empire State Building
The Empire State Building is not just one of the most recognized buildings around the world. It’s a perfect spot for couples to visit and get a bird’s eye view of the city. Take a cue from movies like Sleepless in Seattle and An Affair to Remember. There are numerous moments throughout the day that really up the romance factor, sunrise, sunset, and the entire city lit up at night.
Recently, The Empire State Building unveiled a brand new observation deck on the 102nd floor with floor to ceiling glass windows. Couples can take in the panoramic view from 1,250 feet above street level. For even more access, try a guided tour given by an Ambassador that will provide VIP access throughout the visit.
Private Sightseeing Harbor Cruise & Lunch
If a view from the ground sounds more appealing, delight in a private harbor cruise that offers views of the Manhattan skyline, Statue of Liberty, Battery Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the One World Trade Center, to name a few.
So, say goodbye to crowds and sharing a boat with other noisy patrons. Spend a little time together with someone you love while feeling the wind against your skin. A private tour guide is available to share stories about the city and the harbor, making sure to point out exciting locations along the way. Let’s not forget about food; the private tour comes with a sumptuous lunch that is sure to please any crowd.
Private Bike Tour of Central Park Ending with a Picnic Lunch
As the first landscaped public park in the U.S., Central Park is the perfect place to spend some romantic one-on-one time. One of the more off-the-beaten-path romantic tours is a guided bike tour by a city-licensed professional. Guests are taken along a route that highlights hidden waterfalls, movie scene locations, celebrity homes, and the Bethesda Fountain.
While zooming past the park’s 26,000 trees, visitors will learn some New York City history and visit some beautiful locations. After the two-hour tour, a picnic lunch is just a short walk away. A personalized picnic experience is perfect for two love birds looking to have a meal together after a day of activity. The best part is, everything is included, and there is no clean up required, meaning more time to enjoy what the city has to offer!
