While we all know about the “touristy” things to do during the holidays in New York City, tree lighting ceremony at Rockefeller Center and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, there are some not so well known holiday activities that are a lot less crowded and a lot more fun!
Let’s take a look at 5 fun and interesting things to do in New York City during the holidays:
Bank of America Winter Village At Bryant Park- outdoor Christmas villages, similar to what you’ll find in the UK, are what the Bank of America Winter Village is all about. With plenty of unique and handcrafted gifts, fun for all ages and an ice skating rink, this is a must see when visiting NYC this Christmas.
Check Out The Holiday Windows- get in the Christmas spirit by taking a walk down Fifth Avenue and check out the holiday window displays. Some stores, including Tiffany’s, Cartier and Harry Winston really go all out with their displays and they are something to behold during the Christmas shopping season. For the best experience, dress warm and go after dark.
