Top magical things to do the week before Christmas in NYC
1. Horse Ride in Central Park
Sit back and relax in a stylish coach while you take in some of Central Park’s most popular attractions with that special someone.
2. Lord & Taylor Window Display
Four glamourous windows wrapped around 5th Avenue showcasing “A few of our favourite things”. This display is so beautiful it will have you believing in Christmas magic.
3. Rolf’s German Restaurant
Let me put it this way, any surface that could be covered in Christmas decoration… is. This Alsatian-German restaurant in Gramercy is simply unparalleled when it comes to holiday decor — worth the price of dinner just to bask in its glory.
4. Rockefeller Christmas Tree & Light Show
A chance to gawk at this year’s 76-foot-tall behemoth, decorated with 45,000 LED bulbs, is well worth fighting the crowds.
5. Luminaries in Brookfield Place
Luminaries immerses the Winter Garden at Brookfield Place in a canopy of light emanating from 650 hanging lanterns.
6. Union Square Christmas Markets
Featuring more than 125 boutique-style huts, the Holiday Shops complete the square’s transformation into a winter wonderland.
7. Rockettes Radio City Music Hall
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is an invaluable piece of New York Christmas tradition running for over 80 years.
8. Ice Skating Rink in Bryant Park
Ideal size and not too busy, Bryant Park’s skating rink in Winter Village is the perfect destination.
