7 Places to Have a Family Date in NYC For Valentine’s Day
Be a Tourist! Now there may be a stigma for a tristate area resident to be riding a double decker tour bus in NYC, but 60 million tourists a year can’t be wrong! Why not celebrate living so close to the greatest city in the world by finding out what draws so many to it each year? We’ve enjoyed The Ride/The Tour in the past and it would be a great way to spend time as a family enjoying the sights of the city! Read our review here, and click HERE to buy a special Groupon offer for your family date in NYC!
Live Theater Like Nowhere Else!: Sure there’s Broadway, with new shows like SpongeBob SquarePants and time honored favorites like Wicked, Aladdin and Lion King. Off Broadway shows are out there too, and may be easier to get tickets. Check out The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, or Puffs, for your Harry Potter fan.
Revisit Your Pop Culture Favorites: At the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, Muppet fans will love seeing more than 300 objects from Jim Henson’s legacy. Want something a little scarier? Madame Tussaud’s in Times Square offers the Ghostbusters Experience! Strap on the VR goggles and become a Ghostbuster in the city where they began!

Love Sculpture: While exploring the sights of Midtown Manhattan for a family date in NYC, take a photo in front of the Love Sculpture. Originally designed by American artist Robert Indiana as a Christmas card for the Museum of Modern Art, the sculpture sits on the corner of Sixth Avenue and 55th Street and is the perfect backdrop for a Valentine’s Day photo. For those looking for hope in the new year, not too far away is the Hope Sculpture on the corner of Seventh Avenue and 53rd Street.
NYC Candy Stores: Sweeten your visit to New York with gifts from around the City. At M&M’s World Times Square, create customized M&M’s candies with your own image and personal message for special someone. Make a stop at the Hershey’s Chocolate World location in Times Square! And with two locations in NYC, Dylan’s Candy Bar offers everything your sweet tooth could want in a bright, fun and memorable store. It’s a sweet family date in NYC.
