Everyone spends the Holidays in a special way but there’s no better way to spend it than going to New York City during Christmas time. It is truly one of the most extravagant places to visit during the Holiday season. Decorations, lights, holiday markets, and window displays fill the city with Christmas spirit. If your familiar with the madness during this time of year you already know it is necessary to plan your trip ahead. There so much to see and do but not enough time to do it. During my trip to New York this Holiday season both my sister and I made a list of things we were interested in doing and no
shopping was not one of them [college life sucks] blah. If you have yet to take a trip to New York during the Holiday’s I thought I would spark some inspiration this Christmas Day to get you motivated to make the move to the big city next year.
Radio City Christmas Spectacular 2016
The Radio CIty Music spectacular features a flying Santa, a nativity scene and 3-D glasses. I’m not gonna lie the closest I came to seeing the Rockettes was the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade but it was no doubt on the top of my lists to see during my trip. If only my sister and I were going on a girls getaway.. Our boyfriends were not about it. Just know this show will leave you with the New York experience you were looking for.

Wether you’re traveling, spending time at home, or going on vacation make sure to make memories and most of all make time for yourself during the holidays. Make your Christmas season one to remember.
