5 Romantic Micro Trips to Take Before the End of the Year

New York, NY

The greatest city in the world makes for one of the greatest micro-trips no matter what kind of couple you are. You can center a long weekend around scoring last minute tickets to Broadway shows, or possibly even seeing a performance for free at the Shops at Columbus Circle. Look out for â€śBroadway Under the Stars”, a five-week series of free public performances taking place during the holiday season which include top shows like Waitress, Chicago, Dear Evan Hansen, and more. You can also go on an architecture tour, stroll through the city’s many parks—including the enchanting favorites Central Park and The High Line. There’s also lots of thrills in catching a local game, shopping the old-school 5th Avenue or the new-school Hudson Yards, or simply eating your way through town. Romantic restaurant reccos of late include the sultry Crown Shy, the slick Manhattan and it’s insane views, and the famed Oceana is still tops for seafood lovers. 

After all that running around the Big Apple, you’ll want to also carve out some time for a relaxing moment at Haven Spa, where they offer plenty of unique treatments that will suit either of your relaxation spirits, like a Pumpkin Latte body scrub, a gua cha facial, reflexology foot massages that will soothe aching feet, and of course a classic Deep Tissue or Swedish couples massage you can enjoy side-by-side.

In New York, it’s probably worth it to splurge and stay at one of the city’s dreamiest hotels, The Lowell, on the Upper East Side. Opening its doors almost 100 years ago and sitting on a quiet, tree-lined Upper East Side block, it’s what Gossip Girl fantasies are made of. The hotel is a taste of old, timeless New York mixed with contemporary, posh digs. Downstairs, Majorelle, the dreamy on-property French restaurant is a dining experience in its own right. Filled with large bouquets of fresh-cut flowers and a menu with delectable French fare, it’ll hands-down be one of the most romantic dining experiences you ever have.
