Valentine’s Day is here, so it’s the perfect time to talk about those romantic gestures and, for some, the important prospect of proposals. The trend for popping the question at a beautiful destination abroad is increasing, which will come as no surprise after you’ve feasted your eyes on these romantically inclined getaways. So whether you’re looking for a spectacular place to propose, a breath-taking location to get married or just an enjoyable romantic escape for two, these amorous destinations are sure to get you in the mood.
It’s no surprise that New York is on this list. A magical city with endless opportunities, the sheer scale of it is awe-inspiring enough, so any spot with a good view of the city is a safe bet for romance. Take in the sights from Top of the Rock or The Empire State Building, or if you’re looking for a particularly special dining experience with a view, nowhere beats the exquisite River Café on One Water Street. Situated under the Brooklyn Bridge, you and your partner can step into the beautiful garden after dinner to take in the outstanding view of the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty.
No romantic trip to New York would be complete without visiting the iconic lover’s playground of Central Park. Take a horse drawn carriage ride, glide out onto the boating lake or relax over a picnic, all in the shadow of the most famous cityscape in the world. We feel a proposal coming on already.
New York really is your proposal oyster, but if all this doesn’t ensure an engagement don’t fear; the iconic Tiffany & Co jewellers is just around the corner.
