Helicopter Rides Over NYC – If you do nothing else while in the Big Apple, make sure helicopter rides over NYC are on your list. There is nothing more romantic than an adventure you share together, and helicopter rides over NYC are sure to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Enjoy a Pre-Dinner Cocktail – New York is chock-a-block full of cocktail bars, but you will want to be careful in your choice, as the vibe at different bars can range from trashy to classy and everywhere in between. If it’s romance you’re after, check out Flute, which offers chocolate dipped strawberries – a succulent treat made all the more delightful when paired with a glass of champagne. Flute has a few different locations: check the website to avoid disappointment.

Cozy Up for Dinner at One of New York’s most Romantic Restaurants – It’s hard to know whether New York has more world class bars or restaurants, but one thing is for sure: the city is full of restaurants that cater to love birds such as yourselves! Because everyone’s tastes are so specific, we wouldn’t deign to tell you which is best for you and your beloved. Rather, we’ll point you to Yelp or Urban Spoon, which offer user reviews and tips.
