Christmas in New York

What could be better than Christmas in New York City? Well, this year it looks set to be even better and brighter. For mega-tree lovers, check out Manhattan’s Rockefeller Center’s tree which will be alight well into the new year, until January 7.  You certainly can’t miss it as the tree for 2011 spans 74-feet high and boasts 30,000 lights.  Or, if you want to enjoy a less-than-traditional tree, check out the origami one at the American Museum of Natural History which will be available for viewing ‘til just after the New Year.

Take your kids to see the train and light shows, or get a great look at the cool gingerbread houses over the holiday season.  Then there is the Radio City Music Hall which will be having a festive Christmas Show or you can just enjoy the beauty of St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth Avenue over the holidays.

The whole family will also really enjoy ‘America’s Parade: Celebrating 85 Years of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade’ that is being hosted by the Children’s Museum of Manhattan.

Truthfully, no matter where you decide to lay your hat in New York City over the upcoming holiday season, you’ll be sure to enjoy the festivities that adorn the city.
