7 Romantic Things to Do at the World Trade Center

Whether you are a fan of Valentine's Day (or dread it!), we put together ideas for unique and romantic experiences so you don’t have to. You and your special someone can experience these during the day or evening on the World Trade Center campus. 


1. One World Observatory: Experience the breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views of the city from the observatory on the 102nd floor of One World Trade Center during sunset, or indulge in a five-course meal at the Love on Top intimate dining experience. 


2. Flowers: Stop by Venus et Fleur in the Oculus for a beautiful, luxurious flower arrangement.  As soon as you step into the store, your senses will awaken to the fragrance of roses that line the store’s wall displays. These aren’t your typical bouquets that wilt after a few days -- Venus et Fleur specializes in “eternity flowers” which can last more than a year! Figue Flora also offers fresh-cut flowers for a beautiful bouquet and is located on the Oculus floor near the Apple Store.
