New York Named One of the Most Romantic Places in the World
Turns out New York really is the place for lovers.
Happy Valentine's Day
Some people love to go all out for Valentine's Day. Grand gestures include showering their loved ones with flowers or having them board a jet for a surprise vacation.
However you plan to spend the most romantic day of the calendar year, those living in New York automatically have their plans elevated because a new survey says it's one of the most romantic places in the world.
Condé Nast Traveller, which is a luxury travel magazine geared toward the more affluent, released its list of the world's most romantic spots of 2024. The article was designed to entice honeymooners, but Valentine's Day is also a good reason to take a peek at the lavish list.
Destinations to make the top spots include Italy's Amalfi Coast and The Maldives. However, not just anyone can board a jet and fly off to another country whenever they please.
That doesn't mean people don't like the idea of driving somewhere romantic to impress their partner. Who wouldn't feel special to know their partner took time out of their busy day to plan a little getaway?
According to CN Traveller, the ultimate romantic spot in America is so tantalizingly close and landed at number 10 on their global list.
Where to Stay and Dine in New York
According to CN Traveller, the top destination in the Empire State is, obviously, New York City.
The outlet writes:
New York is no stranger to magical moments of romance. It usually hits the city when the first autumn leaves start to fall, blanketing the city in shades of auburn and ruby, crescendoing up until Christmas when leaves are swapped for twinkling lights. During this time one of the most romantic things to do in New York is to just take a walk, around Central Park, through Greenwich Village, along The High Line.
The publication recommends staying overnight in the Upper East Side and heaped praises onto hotels such as The Lowell and the Aman.
But for those who may not want to drive to the Big City, Central New York has plenty of fabulous options.
For example, the most romantic restaurant in all of New York is located right in Utica. But for those who want to engage in activities that are more centered toward health and wellness, such as massages and spa treatments, a nearby small town was crowned the nation's best place for exactly that.
Plus, one of the best hotels in the world is located a stone's throw away from here.
