A Winter Wonderland in New York City
Even with a chill in the air and snow on the ground, New York City during the winter is one of my most magical places to be. From the gorgeous holiday decorations in the windows of some of the most famous stores in the world to taking walks through the snow in Central Park, the city transforms into a winter wonderland experience that you can’t get anywhere else.
So if you’re ready to put on your warmest clothes, and explore the city, here are 5 must-see places to go to in New York City that are only open during the wintertime.
Ice Skating in Rockefeller Center
There are only a couple of months in the year when Rockefeller center turns into a skating rink that’s open to the public. No matter what your skating ability is, spend an afternoon or evening on the ice, looking at some of New York City’s most historic buildings.
City Bakery’s Annual Hot Chocolate Festival
During the month of February, stop by one of New York City’s most beloved bakeries to try out their lineup of specialty hot chocolates – there’s a new flavor every single day of the month.
See the Rockettes
Get yourself in the winter and holiday spirit by watching a performance of The Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall. Enjoy their “New York Spectacular” show that will top off your winter this season.
Vist a Museum
New York City's art collections are an embarrassment of riches, so warm up while viewing the work of Picasso, Monet, or Pollack this winter. Start at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of the city's largest and most-visited attractions, where a full day spent wandering its grand halls begins to scratch the surface of the museum’s world-class collection. Then move on to other world famous museums, such as The Whitney and Museum of Modern Art.
New York City's restaurants raise the bar every winter by lowering the prices, welcoming gourmands to witness what delicacies lie within price-prohibitive menus during NYC Restaurant Week (January 18–February 5, 2016). Prix-fixe menus all start at $25 for lunch and $38 for dinner, featuring signature dishes of each outpost.
