Christmas in NYC is like no other. It is the most wonderful and magical time of the year. We’ve experienced Christmas in New York twice now. Once pre-kids and once with kids in New York at Christmas. So we’d love to share with you a list of cool things to do in NYC at Christmas with kids (or even without kids).
The Ride is a motor coach decked out with theater seats, floor-to-ceiling windows and flashing lights that takes you around the city so you can witness New York City’s holiday festivities and cheer and live street performers.
At the Wollman Ice Skating Rink in Central Park, you’ll have a stunning backdrop of the New York Skyline, Christmas music and possibly the presence of Santa Claus.It is the larger skating rink out of Bryant Park and Rockefeller.
Santaland is a winter wonderland path to Santa Claus’s lap. You’ll feel like you’ve entered the North Pole as you pass by twinkling lights, Santa’s workshop, and a forest of pine trees to arrive at the throne of the most Santa looking Santa I’ve seen.
Grand Central Station also has a popular Holiday fair as does Union Square Holiday Market. Visiting the Christmas Markets is a popular attraction for Christmas in New York. It’s a great place for you to buy a few gifts for those you love. Just leave room in your bags for your flight home.
