In which City can you better celebrate Christmas than in New York? In the weeks leading up to Christmas, New York turns into something magical. As usual, the Americans are now also taking a big hit. The most beautiful Christmas trees and other decorations appear in the streets. Even the fire engines of the FDNY are not skipped. These are the five must see places when you visit New York during ‘the most wonderful time of the year’.
View the giant Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center
Who does not remember the giant Christmas tree from the movie Home Alone 2? This beautiful Christmas tree, lit with more than 45,000 lights, can be found at Rockefeller Center. At the foot of the tree is a skating rink and an avenue with beautifully lit angels.
Skating on one of the ice rinks
In the winter months you will find several skating rinks in the city. Accompanied by the most fun Christmas songs, it is fun to see how young and old move across the ice. The most enjoyable skating rinks can be found in Central Park (Wollman Ice Rink), at Rockefeller Center and at Bryant Park.
Looking at the Christmas windows by big department stores
The beautifully decorated Christmas windows of the big department stores such as Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s are an attraction in themselves. Costs and effort are not spared to make the most beautiful shop windows. Completely matching the time of the year. Quite often there are rows of people in front of the shop windows to be able to catch a glimpse of the most beautiful creations.
Explore Festive Hotel Lobbies
New York City hotels tend to go all out around the holidays, and each one has its own distinct ‘decor personality.’ My favorite tradition involves hopping from one hotel lobby bar to the next—it’s the perfect way to feel ‘festive’ without having to brave the cold for more than a few blocks.
View a Christmas show
New York is known for its huge range of shows. Special Christmas shows are not missing either. To get all the Christmas mood, you can visit the Radio Christmas Spectacular which runs in the famous Radio City Music Hall.
In short, do you want an unforgettable Christmas? Then go to New York and be enchanted …
