Valentine's Day is unanimously for couples. At least that's how it started, and as much as many hate the idea, it is still unanimously for couples. So since this is a couples day, it is appropriate to make a list that couples can enjoy. Here is some Valentines Day ideas if in or traveling through New York City on this heart filled day.

What's Valentines Day without dinner plans? Here is two ideas with two atmospheres to match whichever personality a couple might have. Love music? More specifically, is Halo by Beyonce the relationship theme song? Have a Beyonce themed meal with the song's namesake at Brucie NYC. If Beyonce is not a part of the relationship but visions of a candlelight dinner, wine, and the Statue of Liberty in the background is, go for a dinner cruise, which is more expensive but will last a couple of hours with lots to do and see.

Who knows what the weather will be like on Valentines Day in New York City? But no matter what, Central Park will not disappoint. Before dinner, take a walk holding hands down one of Central Park's many trails.

Don't wait until Valentines Day to want to get up close to each other though. In fact, stay close together even after the candy and roses are gone. Take couples dance classes in various dance styles, such as Bollywood or Salsa, from Raja RG, a local New York City dancer.

Don't settle for chocolate hearts this year. Do something different and go to one of New York City's chocolate bars. In each bar, chocolates can be paired with different beverages, from coffee to tequila. But either way, leave this for an after dinner choice as no one wants to spoil their dinner, right?

Valentines Day can be predictable as just another time to buy flowers and go to the same boring restaurant. Or Valentines Day can be celebrated New York style with as much creativity as one can handle in order to make it a memorable day for everyone.
