Things to do in NYC Around the Holidays

NYC Holiday Magic
December 12, 2018
By , Families Writer

Do you believe in magic? For Families who need to see and do it all, there is no place more magical than New York City for the holidays. Nothing says classic NYC holiday more than Rockefeller Center. You can twirl on the Rink at Rockefeller Center in the beautiful plaza, under the city’s famous Christmas tree. And while doing so, you’ll want to enjoy a first-class experience.

Head to the VIP Igloo for a reserved skate time, bypass lines for general admission, get complimentary skate rentals, and have skate concierges assist your family with skate rentals. Enjoy in-and-out access to The Rink for the session, and indulge in holiday refreshments including hot chocolate, Nespresso coffee, and an assortment of freshly baked cookies. 

For the ultimate splurge, reserve your VIP private ice time in advance. You can have the iconic rink to yourself (and your entourage). Your little ones will feel like stars on ice with the eyes of the crowd on them, and you can savor the moment, treasure the memories forever, and thank us later.

Next, head to the Radio City Rockettes VIP Elite experience. Enter Radio City through your own private entrance for a pre-show reception in the historic Roxy Suite to jingle and mingle, and take a few selfies with the Rockettes and Santa himself.  You’ll then be escorted to the best seats to take in the magic of the Christmas Spectacular.To end the magical day on a high note, take a dance on the famous Big Piano at the new FAO Schwarz. For the ultimate splurge, reserve a time for your family after the store has closed, or host a private party for your besties. You can’t go wrong.

This ultimate holiday agenda will raise the stakes for your family’s expectations of holiday magic. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. Whisk your family away to have the ultimate New York experience for a most memorable holiday season.
