Looking to get away this February? Escape to NYC for a romantic Valentine’s Day celebration and mega perks, including off-season rates and tons of exciting events. Read on for all the details on what’s happening in NYC this February.

1. It’s the perfect romantic destination for Valentine’s Day.

Whatever your style, NYC is bursting with Valentine’s Day ideas. Get in the mood at Brooklyn Oenology with a local wine tasting and Friday night oysters. Brooklyn Oenology sources local grapes and showcases the work of local artists on its labels. The specially designed labels are easy to peel off so you can take the artwork home.

2. Take advantage of off-season rates.

Flight and hotel prices are lower thanks to the off-season. Check Skyscanner for up-to-date flight prices and Expedia for last minute hotel deals.

3. Celebrate Fat Tuesday in style.

You don’t have to be in the Big Easy to celebrate Mardi Gras; NYC might be the next best thing. The Bell House’s Fat Tuesday bash features eccentric brass ensemble Hungry March Band or get down at B.B. King Blues Club’s Funky Fat Tuesday Celebration with George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic.

4. Lucky you, NYC Restaurant Week runs until February 10.

Take advantage of the limited time offerings and make reservations in advance. How does it work? Restaurants offer at least three choices for appetizers and entrées, and at least two dessert options for one fixed price.

5. Snag Broadway deals.

NYC Broadway Week is in full force until February 5. That means 2-for-1 deals and discounts on upgraded tickets. Shows include Chicago, Cirque du Soleil Paramour, Kinky Boots and Wicked. For discount codes and details, go here.
