“It's the most wonderful time of the year, and by "it" we mean Christmas in New York! We stay DOWNTOWN New York where we live like a true New Yorker for a few days. Christmas is a special time in the Big Apple as the best New York attractions turn into illuminated winter wonderlands, decked out with Christmas trees, holiday windows and Christmas lights. Visit the holiday markets in NYC to find great gift ideas! Attend a showing of the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular (included) , a show that’s bound to fill you with joy, laughter and lasting memories. We will have a local expert on NYC take us on 2 guided tours: a 5-hour day tour where we will see the major sites of NYC, and a night tour where we will see NYC Department stores window displays and also enjoy a cruise to Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island.
This trip will become part of your Christmas memories!”
