No matter where you leave your heart, CityPass®, the company known for assembling the continent's most-visited city attractions in convenient booklets, makes it easy and affordable by bundling the best in each city and topping it off with a romantic suggestion, on Valentine's Day or any day marked for romance.
For traditional head-in-the-clouds romantics in New York, Toronto, Chicago, Boston and Seattle, consider the obvious - the city's landmark viewing towers. Yes, it's been done before. Yes, the air could be swirling with proposals, but North America's best viewing towers are open late and there's always a camera nearby to capture the moment. Because love won't wait, CityPass breezes ticket holders past main entrance lines at a savings of about 50% off box office prices and frosts the most-loved attractions in each city with fabulous views.
New York: Empire State Building Observatory--practice your favorite Empire State Building line from almost 100 movies (or stick with Affair to Remember--"It's as close to heaven as you can get.") Also included in CityPass: The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum, The American Museum of Natural History, and a visit to the Statue of Liberty aboard Statue Cruises or a romantic Circle Line Sightseeing Cruise; $79.

Also: Casa Loma Castle, Ontario Science Centre, Royal Ontario Museum and Toronto Zoo; $59 CAD.
