If you live or have ever visited NYC, you know that it’s one of the greatest cities in the world. However, in addition to being one of the greatest cities, it’s also one of the most expensive. Between rent, Ubers, and your seamless bill, a holiday that’s centered around celebrating your loved one via overpriced meals and novelty teddy bears can easily put a strain on any financial plan. Mix it up this year by taking your significant other to the Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park. Bryant Park is the only free admission ice skating rink in NYC making it a great budget-friendly v-day spot. You can rent skates for a small fee or bring your own for free. Skating under the NYC skyline is not only romantic, it’s also fun!
Of course, after you work up an appetite you can stop by the Winter Village Eatery, Public Fare, for some casual cuisine and cocktails. Just be sure to save room for dessert as you indulge your sweet tooth at DŌ, Cookie Dough Confections. DŌ’s cookie dough concoctions are easily the most Instagrammed dessert of 2017 with their first store opening in NYC hosting lines that seem to be a mile long. In other words, it’s really really good. I’d say it’s the perfect way to end Valentine’s day.
Wishing all you lovebirds a Happy V-Day!
