New York City is a great vacation destination any time of the year, but there’s something magical about the city during the holiday season. Between American Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve there are countless holiday attractions, so make sure to squeeze in a few of these special activities in addition to sightseeing and stopping by Central Park.
Visit Rockefeller Center
The Rockefeller Christmas tree is lit the Wednesday after American Thanksgiving and is truly a breathtaking sight. For a fun evening out, reserve tickets to skate at The Rink at Rockefeller Center and you’ll be able to see the tree from the ice.
View the Window Displays
Many of the major retailers create over-the-top window displays for the holiday season. You can take a self-guided walking tour, about 3.25 kilometres (2 miles), through Manhattan and window-shop the displays of Bloomingdale’s, Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy’s.
Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes
Probably the most well-known Christmas show, this crowd favourite has been performed by the Radio City Rockettes since 1933. No trip to NYC is complete without taking in a show, and we highly recommend crossing this one off your bucket list.
Whatever holiday attractions you visit during your trip to the Big Apple, ensure you’re properly protected with travel insurance. Winter weather can wreak havoc on travel plans, but with the right insurance you can be reimbursed for missed flights or cancelled trips.
