Let’s face it, it’s been a rotten two years for most people. Coronavirus has really taken the fun out of so many activities that previously we took for granted. Well, now that it’s Christmas, the time of goodwill and merriment, and we find ourselves in New York, let’s splurge a little on some of the awesome attractions and events on offer.
First up there is the New York City Christmas Eve Dinner Cruise. This event is everything Christmas in New York should be about…and hasn’t been because of the pandemic. And this isn’t just about the traditional Rockefeller Center but seeing and experiencing the infamous New York skyline while gently cruising by. The views of the skyline are unparalleled in the water but this cruise also features a spectacular buffet dinner, open bar and a DJ playing all the classic holiday hits.
For those wanting to stay on land, you can choose to either walk or be driven around with the NYC Holiday Lights Tour by Limousine or the (somewhat more) budget-friendly New York Christmas Holiday Small-Group Walking Tour.
For the limousine tour you get to enjoy the holiday lights from a nice warm, luxurious limo as you sip champagne and watch those outside battle the Manhattan cold. You get to see the Dyker Heights displays, the incredible view from Brooklyn Bridge and so much more. And, since the tour is private, you get to tell your driver when to stop and let you take pictures! –
For the walking tour one can enjoy the special New York holiday spirit through the classic NY haunts: Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, Fifth Avenue store windows, Bryant Park holiday market, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and so much more. It truly is a festive spirit and what better way to experience it than to walk through it!
So whichever route you choose for your festive celebrations, make sure you choose one and try to capture as much as you can in your mind or through the camera because Christmas in NYC must be emblazoned on us for eternity.
