The Rockefeller Christmas Tree
This really is a must. People travel from far and wide to see the tall Norwegian spruce nestling beneath the mighty Rockefeller Center just off Sixth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. Go by night to admire the lights and watch the skaters on the brightly lit ice rink.
Bryant Park Winter Village
Two blocks east of Times Square on W42nd Street is another must for your Christmas vacation in New York. The Bryant Park Winter Village is New York's favorite Christmas market, complete with 170 stalls and a 17,000-square-foot ice skating rink.
Holiday Window Displays
New York is alive with light during the holiday season, and nowhere more so than in the ornate window displays of the major stores, which each year become more extravagant as they attempt to out-do each other. Our tips: the windows at Bloomingdale's, Saks 5th Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Macy's and Tiffany's.
A Christmas Show
There's always a whole host of holiday themed stage shows to see on your Christmas vacation in New York. An annual favorite at the renowned Radio City Music Hall is the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, starring the high kicking Rockettes.
