New York City is a favorite place for a getaway at any time of the year, but during the holidays, it’s even more exciting. The stores are decorated with festive displays, the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center is breathtaking, and it’s a great time for a stroll through Central Park.

Traditional Events

Most people visit New York during the holidays for the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the lighting of one of the world’s biggest Christmas trees, and the Radio City Music Hall Christmas production featuring the Rockettes. New Year’s Eve in Times Square is an event to attend at least once to see the ball drop at midnight. However, there are a lot of activities that make your holidays merry.

New York City Ballet

A wonderful event for the family is George Balanchine’s production of Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker.” Kids and adults thrill to the spectacular costumes, music, and dance. The production runs from November 27th through January 3rd and is performed by the New York City Ballet.

Holiday Markets

If you’re planning a trip to new York for Christmas shopping, you can find some real treasures at the holiday markets around the city. Artisans from around New York feature handmade crafts at the markets, so you’re sure to find special gifts for everyone. You can avoid worrying about parking and enjoy the trip more if you hire a limo to transport you to and from the markets. You can shop at the Columbus Circle and Union Square Holiday Markets, the Holiday Shops at Bryant Park, and the Holiday Fair at the Grand Central Terminal in Vanderbilt Hall.

Holiday Train Show

If you’re traveling with your children, you won’t want to miss the train show at the New York Botanical Garden. The show features model trains that wind through miniature replicas of New York’s neighborhoods at the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. The show features a light and sound show to enchant adults and kids.

Plan your trip so you can take in as many of the special events that the city has to offer during the holiday season, and don’t forget a special night out on the town to celebrate the holidays in style.
