If you have been following me on Snapchat (@EverythingObses) you probably have seen that I spent last Sunday in New York. Although I have been to New York millions of times (ok not millions but you get what I mean), I’ve never been there during the holiday season. I wanted that ‘Christmas in New York’ Experience! So I was excited when David and I decided to go down on Sunday to meet up with a friend of our’s for the day. Although I was there just for the day, we saw some things that I loved and would definitely recommend to anyone going to NYC at Christmas time. Here is my list of things I’ve done & want to do still.
5 Things to do in NYC during the holidays
- Rockefeller Center – I’ve been wanting to see the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center for as long as I can remember! It’s probably the biggest Christmas Tree I’ve ever seen. Rockefeller Center is such a nice place to see all year round, but even more amazing at Christmas time.
- Stroll up 5th ave – There is no place like 5th Ave at Christmas time. These shops are more decorative than you could ever imagine. If this doesn’t help you get that Christmas feeling, I don’t know what will.
- Bryant Park – This visit, I took my fist ever trip to Bryant Park, and wow did I pick a good time of the year to see it. Now, although the tree at Rockefeller was pretty awesome, the tree at Bryant Park is one of the most beautiful – if not THE most beautiful – I’ve ever seen. The Christmas markets and stalls are just fab. There are numerous great sweet shops too. We had delicious waffles from ‘Waffles & Dinges’. I wold definitely recommend the waffle with Nutella!
- The Palace – I’ve actually never been to the Palace, but it is on my list of things I want to do. The tree is supposed to be amazing (just go check out @LCsCloset website or on Instagram / Snapchat to see all about it). A few bloggers that I follow have been posting pictures there and it looks divine. It’s a must in my view.
- Browse around the houses of the upper East Side – There’s really nowhere that compares to the houses of the upper East Side. It seriously is a living goal no matter who you are. These houses go all-out for every season, and Christmas is one not to be missed!
Let me know if you have done any of these things before or if this helped you.
