From the lights that adorn the frosted window panes at Macy's department store to the Greenwich Village cafes that usher travellers in from the cold, holiday spirit is alive and well in New York City. The fantastical shows, world-class art galleries and trademark international cuisine that define this invigorating city year round are amplified when snow coats the rooftops of the five boroughs and decorations outshine even the brightest lights of Times Square. Enjoy the giant toy stores, intricate window displays and warm cafe ambiance that make Christmas such a remarkable time in the Big Apple.
The NYSee Christmas Lights Tour escorts guests through the distinctive neighbourhoods of New York as they put on holiday displays and pay homage to winter's charm. Recall the Christmas classic "Miracle on 34th Street" with a visit to Macy's, and peer through the window to the world famous holiday displays. Then it's by bus over to Dyker Heights, in Brooklyn, for a stroll through the photographic lights and decorations that adorn the houses and mansions of this Italian enclave before admiring the breathtaking Lower Manhattan skyline from a perch in Fulton Ferry Landing. Finally, travel back to Manhattan to Greenwich Village and its small-town wintery feel where you can grab a hot drink before ending the tour in Washington Square Park.
While in the city, try and plan a visit to Radio City Music Hall's Christmas Spectacular or a performance of the Nutcracker by the New York City Ballet. Also on your own time, pop into Macy's Santa display to grab a photo of the kids with Mr. Claus, or head over to the giant keyboard at FAO Schwartz (while kids peruse possible holiday gifts). Check out the Botanical Gardens in the Bronx for their elaborate Holiday Train Show, or take some laps around the ice rink that rests under the iconic Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center.
