New York, it’s the Big Apple, the city that never sleeps and THE place to be. It’s where celebrities go to shop, it’s where people go to find celebrities and it’s where you should go to celebrate Valentines Day.
You will be staying in the Verve Hotel, which is located in Long Island City and received a TripAdvisor rating of 92% & a Certificate of Excellence 2014. It is really close to the Chrysler Building and also Grand Central Terminal; both really popular places to see whilst visiting New York, so you can easily get there before the crowds all show up. Whilst you’re staying here, your breakfast is included every morning, so you don’t have to go wondering to try and find something, unless you want to.
This deal is available to you through expedia.co.uk for only £594 per person! Included in this deal is your Hotel Stay, your Flights and a daily breakfast, which is really cheap for a 4 night stay in New York. It is worth noting that there are various different flights available, with different times and with different companies, just pick the ones with times that best suit you!
In my opinion, it is hard to beat New York in Winter. It’s crisp, cold and brutal but there’s something really inviting about it. I enjoy walking through Central Park, there’s a really nice silence that kind of settles over it during the Winter time. I would definitely recommend wrapping up warm, New York is not known for its high temperatures.
There is so much for you to do whilst in New York that it’s really difficult to prioritise what you want to do. As this is a trip designed for over the Valentines Day period I am going to mention the more romantic attractions. I would recommend heading to the Barbetta Restaurant, although you definitely have to book in advance! It is one of the most romantic places to eat in New York City, and is actually the oldest Italian restaurant in New York. It is the perfect date venue.
There is also the iconic option of heading to the Rockafeller Center, where there is an ice rink that you can use. It’s used in every romantic-comedy you can mention, yet there’s something brilliantly cheesy about going, so I would definitely suggest it.
This is the perfect romantic getaway for the Valentines Day period. It’s at that time where you’re starting to lag and need a good break to revitalise. How better to do that than with the person you love?
