2. New York, New York

Romantic Escape

Of course you must skate arm-in-arm at Rockefeller Center, snuggle under a blanket while riding in a horse-drawn carriage through Central Park and gasp at the views from the 86th-floor observatory of the Empire State Building. Clich├ęs? Sure. But they'll still warm even the most jaded cynic's heart. So will the sight of lower Manhattan from the Brooklyn Promenade, the free trip across New York Harbor on the Staten Island Ferry and the overlooks from high above the East River on the Roosevelt Island Tram. For a coastal interlude, try drinks at the 14th-floor, waterfront Rise bar in The Ritz-Carlton hotel at Battery Park; 212/484-1200 or nycvisit.com
