Sam Baldwin, a Chicago architect, loses his wife to cancer. He and his young son Jonah start new lives in Seattle, but Sam still grieves.
18 months later, on Christmas Eve 1992, Jonah—who wants his father to find a new wife—calls into a talk radio, advice show. He, on the advice of the radio show host, persuades Sam to go on the air to talk about how much he misses his wife. Hundreds of women from around the country hear the program, and touched by the story, write to Sam.
One of the listeners is Annie Reed, a Baltimore Sun reporter. She is engaged to a sweet, awkward man named Walter but feels that there is something missing from their relationship. After watching An Affair to Remember Annie impulsively writes a letter suggesting that Sam meet her on top of the Empire State Building on Valentine's Day. She does not intend to mail it but her friend and editor Becky does it for her, and agrees to send Annie to Seattle to "look into doing a story on those radio shows."
Sam begins to date a coworker, Victoria, whom his son dislikes because, among other things, she "acts like a ho'" and "laughs like a hyena". Jonah, a baseball fan, reads Annie's letter and likes that it mentions the Baltimore Orioles, but fails to convince his father to go to New York to meet Annie. On the advice of his friend Jessica, Jonah replies to Annie agreeing to the New York meeting.
While dropping Victoria off at the airport for a flight, Sam sees Annie exiting from her plane and is infatuated, although he has no idea who she is. Annie spies on Sam and Jonah playing on the beach together, but mistakes Sam's sister Suzy for his girlfriend. He recognizes her from the airport and says "Hello", but Annie can only respond with another "Hello" before fleeing. She decides she is being foolish, and goes to New York to meet Walter for Valentine's Day.
Jessica, whose parents are travel agents, helps Jonah fly to New York. Sam follows his son and finds him at the observation deck of the Empire State Building. Annie sees the skyscraper from the Rainbow Room, where she is dining with Walter, and confesses her doubts. They amicably end their engagement. Jonah and Sam get on the down elevator just before Annie reaches the observation deck. She finds Jonah's backpack, not knowing whom it belongs to. Jonah and Sam return for the backpack and finally meet Annie for the first time. They leave, Sam and Annie walking off hand in hand.
