There’s nothing quite like New York City in the wintertime. During the holidays, the city has a whimsical, almost magical ambience about it. If you haven’t experienced it, it’s not to be missed. If you have experienced it – well, there’s a good chance you’d like to go back and experience the magic all over again.
This holiday season is the perfect time to take a family trip to New York City. There is so much to see and do in the city this time of year, and it’s truly the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit.
Here are a few of our top recommendations for things to do in New York City during the holiday season.
See the Radio City Christmas Spectacular
Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, the Radio City Christmas Spectacular is a show you won’t want to miss this holiday season – or any holiday season for that matter. The Rockette’s fantastic seasonal show is a beloved holiday tradition for resident New Yorkers and tourists alike. It typically runs from mid-November through early January at the Radio City Music Hall at Rockefeller Center in the heart of New York City.
Take a Picture by the Tree in Rockefeller Center
One of the most amazing sights of the holiday season is the humongous holiday tree in Rockefeller Center. The lighting of the tree is a signal to New Yorkers that the holiday season has officially begun. Shimmering with thousands of lights and towering hundreds of feet above the pedestrians on the plaza, the tree is a beautiful sight and one you won’t want to miss if you’re visiting NYC this winter. It’s also a great place to take a beautiful family photo!
Ice Skate at One of NYC’s Public Skating Rinks
There are a number of skating rinks that open up around the city when the temperatures drop and the snow starts to fly. At the skating rink at Rockefeller Plaza, you can skate in the shadow of the giant holiday tree and enjoy the beautiful decorations. You can also skate outdoors at Bryant Park. For indoor ice skating, check out Prospect Park and Chelsea Piers.
Do a Little Holiday Shopping
NYC is a great place to get a little – or a lot – of holiday shopping done. From traditional department stores to the various holiday markets that pop up throughout the city during the holidays, you’ll find it all in the city. While you’re shopping, be sure to check out the fabulous window displays put on by many of the city’s retailers. These iconic displays add to the holiday ambience of the city and are quite impressive to look at.
