It's the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas is one of my favorite holidays (I'm a bad Jew). NYC really grabs the spirit of Christmas and I compiled a list of things to do with your significant other, friends, and family. December is the only time or best time to do these things. I absolutely will be doing most of these things and you should too. Here is a list of activities to do in NYC during Christmas time.
1. Rockefeller Tree
Take a nice picture with the Rockefeller Christmas tree that gets lit up every night with more than fifty thousand lights.
2. Ice Skating
It's romantic and magical to ice-skate during this time. Manhattan has two great locations to do that. You can do that in Rockefeller Center right under the christmas tree, or you can ice-skate in Central Park. Lines are usually long but worth the wait.
3. Radio City Rockettes
This show has been shown since 1933. It's a large group of talented woman dancing in sync to holiday music in festive outfits. They are famous for the parade of the wooden soldiers.
4. Fifth Avenue Shopping
Huge well known department stores decorate their windows in the most unique festive way every year. Macys, Lord and Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, and Barneys are known for their Christmas windows! Plus holiday sale shopping never hurt.
5. Rolfs German Restaurant
Have dinner at a a very popular hot spot restaurant that has the most beautiful interior christmas decorating. They have a bar and German food. Good ratings and festive ambiance.
