NYC Romantic Get Away

One of the best romantic get away weekends I ever had was a mystery birthday adventure I gave my husband a few years ago. I gave him a new overnight bag with a note that said to pack for one day and to be ready at 7AM the following Saturday. That’s it!

Without a word I drove us to the airport while he wondered where we could be going for just a day. It wasn’t until we were checking into the airlines that he learned we were off for a decadent overnight to NYC.

I would love to repeat that again sometime very soon.

I would find a lovely little hotel, like the Iroquois New York in Times Square and find a spot for a champagne brunch. We would stroll over to Central Park, window shopping all the way, and take a horse and carriage ride.

Then, off to Chinatown for some bargain hunting, perhaps stop for an antipasto and bottle of wine in Little Italy and top the day off with a Broadway Show.

I would end our day with a bottle of champagne in our room with a fruit and cheese tray.
