So if you’ve lived on the planet for more than 10 years you’ll likely be familiar with Jay Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind”. You’ve probably even spent a good amount of time in the Big Apple itself, and “oohed” and “aahed” over the views. Smack dab in the middle of this skyline etched on every tourist souvenir is the Empire State Building. The truth is, you can’t call yourself a local if you haven’t gone to the tippy-top at some point in your life. There’s no better time than today, so what are you waiting for?

Standing 102 floors tall, you can be whisked up to the Observation Deck on the 86th floor and/or the Top Deck. On your way up, you can stop at the 80th floor for an exclusive exhibit showcasing the history of the building, free for everyone who’s paid general admission.

The hours of the Empire State building are unparalleled, just like the views. Open every day of the year from 8am to 2am, it’s the perfect romantic destination for any occasion, especially Valentine’s Day! A live saxophonist plays for your enjoyment Thursday through Saturday nights from 10:00 pm to 1:00 am.

Buying tickets online saves you the hassle of long lines and wait times, especially if you choose the “express” ticket option, which at only $50- $67 is well worth it.

Let the skyline work double duty when you take Seastreak into Manhattan in the evening. Enjoy break-taking views from sea to (observation) deck that will make for a perfect date night.
