Valentine's Day is just around the corner and NYC offers everything you need, and much more, for the perfect Valentine's Day Weekend. There are tours, tens of romantic restaurants to choose from and all the chocolate and candy you can eat. Here's few of our picks for the best times.

For a perfect date idea or a girl’s day out, join the ride through the city’s romantic side. On the Romantic Movie Moments Tour (approximately 2,5 hrs), a local New York City actor will bring to life some of the most alluring movie locations featured on the big screen. Movie lovers will become enchanted seeing locations from films including When Harry Met Sally, Serendipity 3, You’ve Got Mail (including a stop at Cafe Lalo, pictured below), Love Affair, Sleepless in Seattle, Sweet Home Alabama and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Purchase tickets directly here with On Location Tours or ask our front desk to arrange. 
Fine dining in a landmark Greenwich Village carriage house surrounded by flowers, warmed by dual fireplaces and smooth live piano music. This fixed-price-only American restaurant is known to be one of the city's most romantic. 
17 Barrow Street (near Seventh Ave South.)
The House is a magnificently restored 1854 carriage house located in the historic Gramercy Park. It feels like you've stepped back in time in the fireplace-warmed parlor and an intimate, second-story dining room marked by skylights, portholes, and a gorgeous crescent window. 
121 E. 17th St.
Get sweets for your Valentine at this old-style candy store, Ms. Myzel's. Great variety of handmade, European-style chocolate. They also specialize in licorice, featuring 100 flavors directly from Europe. Located just two blocks south from the Salisbury Hotel at 140 W. 55th Street (between 6th-7th Ave).
Other good candy stores worth checking out in NYC include Economy Candy Market, Dylan’s Candy Bar, Sockerbit Sweet & Swedish and Papabubble.
