One of the biggest NYC events in February is Valentine’s Day. Fortunately, the city offers a bevy of options, including enjoying a decadent dinner from one of the best NYC restaurants and a number of performances from stand-up to burlesque. You could also go for a romantic walk together or put on some of the sexiest songs ever made. Conversely, if you're nursing a broken heart, curl up with a bottle of wine and the best breakup songs of all time or enjoy a night in, watching the best sex scenes in movies and TV shows.

When is Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day falls on February 14 every year. In 2021, Valentine’s Day will be on a Sunday.
