During the holidays in New York City, there is something special in the air. It is not easy to describe, but it is something you sense when you see the lights, the people, and the hustle and bustle of holiday preparation. All New Yorkers have their favorite spot to “sense” the holidays. The Christmas Markets in Grand Central Station is one and the plaza at Lincoln Center is another. Many like to gaze at the stupendous windows of Macy’s and Sak’s, while the traditionalist will marvel at the wonder of 30,000 lights on the tree at Rockefeller Center. Come along with one of our New York guides and experience the holidays in New York; like no other place for the holidays. Your guide will take you to spots you have only seen in the movies and also their favorite spot, and if you have been nice and not naughty, maybe even reveal a secret or two about the holidays in New York. So, grab your Santa cap and come along for a ride of lights and smiling faces.
