Top Things to Do in New York City During the Holidays

1 // 2 // 3 // 4

Ah New York City during the holidays. So many lights, shows, and decorations. It is the place to be. But with so many options to choose from, what activities should you do?

Don't worry--I've narrowed it down to eight perfect festive activities to fulfill all your holiday wishes.

1. Ice Skate at Rockefellar Center. This is probably one of the most iconic Christmas sights in New York City. Rockefellar Center is transformed during the holidays into a magical spot. Also if you've ever wanted to live out your ice skating dreams from Elf, here is your chance.  

2. See the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. I definitely recommend seeing a show around the holidays and why not make it this festive one?

3. Shop at the Macy's in Herald Square The original Macy's has been decked out in Christmas lights for weeks now and it is a sight to behold. Grab a holiday drink at one of the five Starbucks locations and wonder through this giant department store. 

4. Union Square Holiday Market. Urban Square features local restaurants and food vendors and travels around the city. During the holidays they set up shop in Union Square and offer a holiday market as well. I highly recommend checking out the fresh gingerbread if you visit!

5. Sip a frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity: Yes--this is where they filmed the iconic Serendipity film back in 2001. It is kind of a must visit sort of thing [if I do say so myself]. 

6. See the christmas decorations at The Plaza: This luxurious hotel becomes even more decadent around the holidays. I promise it is worth a trip. And who knows--you might even spot Eloise. 

7. Go to The Nutcracker at the Lincoln Center. The Nutcracker is my favorite tradition. For the past handful of years, I've gone to see The Nutcracker with my mom in San Francisco. Hopefully a new tradition will be born this year in Lincoln Center when she visits. 

8. See the view from the Top of the Rock: This may not be an actual "Christmas" activity but if you are visiting New York [or live here], this is an incredible sight and is appropriate for any time of the year.

Is there anything crucial I forgot? Let me know! :)

Happy Holidays!
