Christmas in New York City is the stuff dreams are made of. You don’t have to head to the mountains in order to get that feeling of Christmas. New York City becomes a winter wonderland during the holidays: snow blankets the streets of Manhattan; the exquisite Christmas window displays adorning the stores along Fifth Avenue; ice skaters glide across the Rockefeller Center Skating Rink as the Rockefeller Christmas tree glows beneath the New York skyline.
Even though New York City is one of the biggest and best holiday destinations in the world, you don’t have to choose between buying Christmas presents for the family or taking them on a holiday vacation to New York City.
