10 Best Christmas & Holiday Attractions Page 1
Carriage Ride in Central Park. Enjoy a crisp carriage ride in Central Park snuggled next to your loved ones like it was done 100 years ago in New York City. Best taken at twilight.
NYC Ice Skating. I learned to ice skate during the late fall and winter months in New York City’s Wollman Rink in Central Park. Rent ice skates at the local ice skating rinks for $10 to $20 a few hours on the ice. Most rinks allow you to skate for free if you bring your own. Bring your own lock to avoid having to rent one for the lockers. Grab some hot chocolate afterwards at a local NYC coffee shop to cap off the day and unwind. 10 Best Ice Skating Rinks in New York City
NYC Holiday Window Displays. Manhattan is all about extravagant holiday windows displays. For example, the holiday window displays at Macys provide interactive screens along with moving contraptions and colorful characters. Bergdorf Goodman’s holiday window displays are typically shocking and beautiful at the same time, a true piece of contemporary art. Even Chelsea Market, 9th Avenue between 15th & 16th Street, has a beautiful holiday window display too. Read about the rest at NYC’s 10 Best Holiday Window Display Tour
New York City’s Holiday Show. In my opinion nothing says Christmas in New York like Radio City’s Christmas Spectacular featuring The Rockettes. Another great show, a ballet, is The Nutcracker performed by the New York City Ballet from now until December 31st.
Shopping in NYC. FAO Swartz, Macys, 5th Avenue, Bloomingdales, Broadway in SoHo, Canal Street, and more, the streets of Manhattan and sections of the outer boroughs offer some of the best shopping in the world. From A to Z with clothing and apparel, jewelry, shoes, watches, makeup, luggage, furniture, and everything else under the sun for your holiday shopping needs.
