Christmas in New York City

Christmas in New York City is a tradition for many families ours included.
With classic events like the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, skating in Rockefeller Center, beautiful window displays, and of course the tree. New York City offers a great day out with the family. We took the ferry into the city it was pretty cold around 20 degrees. It had snowed over the weekend so everything looked great covered in a blanket of white (at least on the Jersey side of the river). The bus from the ferry dropped us off a few blocks from Radio City.On our walk we stopped off for lunch at Applebee's.

This year we were guests of Radio City, before the show we got in to meet with the big guy himself, Santa. The Christmas Spectacular was updated quite a bit last year so if you have not been to see the it in a few years you will be pleasantly surprised.

After the show we went on a tour back stage where we were able to pet the animals from the nativity act. There we camels, sheep, and a donkey named Billy.
Z-girl even got to take a ride on an electric car on the stage. All of this made it a pretty special day.

After we left Radio City we went to see the tree. Tall and majestic it stands with it's lights glowing. People come from all around dealing with gridlock, cold weather, and crowds just to get a view a picture.

Ice skating at Rockefeller Center is an essential New York City winter experience. The rink was built in 1936, replacing the complex’s original shopping concourse. Today, more than a quarter of a million skaters enjoy the Rockefeller Center rink every year from October through April.You don’t need skates or reservations to skate at the Rockefeller Center Ice-Skating Rink. You can rent your skates, but the rink can get crowded, especially during the holiday season when tourists flock to Rockefeller Center. Your best bet is to skate in the early morning or on weekdays before 4 p.m.

Then we left Rockefeller Center got back on the bus to the ferry and back to New Jersey for some hot chocolate at Starbucks.
