A Magical Christmas in New York!

story by: Inspire Magazine

Anyone who's been lucky enough to experience Santa's season in New York will tell you that ​nowhere does Christmas better. The spirit of the season is infectious, and New Yorkers seize the opportunity to celebrate every captivating moment of it.

Start the silly season off by heading along to Rockefeller Centre Plaza to see the towering Christmas tree, resplendent with a Swarovski Star and over 30,000 glittering lights; and have a turn gliding on the ice skating rink laid out beneath the golden statue of Prometheus to revel in a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Another must-do is a trip to Santaland at Macy's department store, but remember this Santa's the real deal with a genuine beard - so don't go tugging it. Afterwards, wander down 5th Avenue to view spectacular store windows transformed into extravagant and unforgettable creations especially for your holiday viewing pleasure.

If you're visiting with children check out FAO Schwartz, New York's most famous toy store, where there’s a giant piano keyboard set in the floor for the kids to go nuts on. Then head to the Bronx Botanical Garden where, during the holiday season, kids can marvel over the charming 1/2km toy train track complete with scale models of New York icons.

Carriage rides through Central Park are a particular seasonal favourite not to be missed. Get in the festive spirit and rug up warm with a blanket and hot chocolate to be swept away through the enchantment of twinkling fairy lights in the trees above you. All this, plus the sights that are great any time of the year – a short boat ride to the Statue of Liberty, a stroll through Times Square, walking the Brooklyn Bridge - the itinerary for your most amazing Christmas ever is endless!
