NYC - The Official Guide

Holidays

There’s no place like New York City for the holidays, when the indomitable spirits of New Yorkers take a turn for the sentimental. Annual traditions include giant balloons floating down Sixth Avenue on Thanksgiving Day, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree illuminating to great fanfare and the world-famous Rockettes dazzling audiences at Radio City. Beyond the big events, you’ll find plenty of festive diversions: go gift shopping at outdoor markets or sip hot cocoa as you peruse spectacular storefront displays. When the snow falls, head to the closest park and unleash your inner child.
