Christmas in New York

Christmas is an important holiday in the US, and it is also seen in the enthusiasm that adorns the houses. Every year there is a huge Christmas tree in front of the Rockefeller Center and the windows on Fifth Avenue are excited with their beautiful decorations! If you're in New York during Christmas time, there's a lot of things you shouldn't miss. Let yourself be enchanted and contaminated by the missed Christmas spirit!

The Christmas lighting of US houses is often overwhelming and not nearly comparable to what we know. If you want to see luxurious homes, how to know them from American movies and television series, Manhattan should leave and go to Dyker Heights in Brooklyn. The area is famous for its unique Christmas decorations, and it was itself the “best decorated residential area of all America.” Take part in the three and a half hour tour, the Dyker Heights Christmas Lights Tour, and amaze the beautifully lit and decorated houses.

The tour begins in Lower Manhattan, where you will take a bus and guide to Brooklyn. You'll hardly trust your eyes when you get to Dyker Heights. Some of the installations cost more than $10,000. To get to Christmas, there are Christmas videos and Christmas music on the bus.

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular, starring Rockettes, is one of the most iconic Christmas shows in New York. The show has everything from Santa Claus and Nutcracker to the Birth of Christ. The show will be performed several times a day from the beginning of November. So you have enough chances to be there. If you've seen the show before, you can go again with a clear conscience, as the performance is a little different every year. The Christmas Spectacular takes place at Radio City Music Hall and is really the best way to really get into the Christmas spirit.

The Rockefeller Center is a popular shopping point in winter, not only because of the beautiful Christmas tree but also known for its ice bar. It's a great experience at the Rockefeller Center to go skating. The queues to get on the ice can be quite long. If you want to play ice skating here for Christmas time, you should choose the VIP ice skating arrangement.

You can get access to the VIP Chalet next to the ice bar and then you can relax from the ice skating and warm up with a hot chocolate, coffee and pastry. Everything is included in the arrangement. And you'll get more yourself! With the arrangement you will have free access to the Top of the Rock. From the 70th floor viewing platform you have a great view of New York City.
