The city has a ton do to during the Holidays so picking my favorites was hard. When it came down to these are the things I do nearly every year without fail. In fact it just wouldn’t be Christmas time with seeing everything on my list. Don’t forget to check out our Top Places to Eat & Drink during the Holidays.
Below My Top Things to See in NYC during the Holidays.
This is always number one on my list. The minute that tree goes up it feels like Christmas and even though I have seen it almost every year it always is magical. More than just the tree, Rockafeller center has an ice rink and beautiful angels making this a great place to have a hot coco and people watch.
Dyker Heights Holiday Lights
Every year this Brooklyn neighbor has an unofficial contest to see who’s put on the best light show. Think Deck the Halls but with mini mansions.
Bryant Park Village
During the Holidays Bryant Park feels like it can be straight out of an Christmas movie. Not only is it so picturesque but its got great shopping, yummy treats, an ice skating rink and a ton of fun actives for the whole family.
Fifth Avenue Window Displays
One of my all time favorite things to do is window shopping the stores along Fifth ave. All the stores go all out for their displays often times employee artist to help create buzz. My favorites are using Bloomingdale’s and Bergdorf Goodman.
Radio City Music Hall & Surrounding areas
Radio City Music Hall just screams Christmas to me between the Rockettes and the surrounding decorations it’s uber festive. Don’t forget to check out the giant ornaments across the street for some great photo ops.
