The holiday season in New York City is truly a sight to behold. Window shopping alone is transformed by beautiful displays to enjoy while walking the city streets for business and pleasure. Whether you are a long-time resident or just looking to get out of your temporary apartment while here on business, here is the best of the holidays in New York for you to check out this season!
Ice Skating. Skating beneath the humongous tree in Rockefeller Center is a definite highlight. Native New Yorkers know, however, that skating at Central Park’s Wollman Rink is quite the treat as well, and tends to far less crowded!
Frozen Hot Chocolate. No matter how cold it is outside, it’s worth bundling up for a frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity. Take a break from holiday shopping and stop by their Midtown location.
See a Show. The stages of New York come alive in December with holiday magic. From the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, featuring the Rockettes, to one of the many renditions of The Nutcracker, there is something for everyone!
Light Displays. It’s worth making the trip out to Brooklyn to see the Dyker Height’s Christmas Lights. Put on by local homeowners, these displays are like nothing you’ll find in Manhattan. You can brave it by foot or book a bus tour.
In addition to some of these little-known treasures, NYC is always good for shopping, fine dining, and seeing the sights!
