    Hi All!
    We’ve just taken the plunge and booked a trip to NYC 26-31st December - all 6 of us - the children’s first visit to USA

    Anyone any experience, ideas, they’d like to share with me? I’d be very appreciative

    Thanks in advance

    NYC is beautiful at Christmas time. Biggest must will be going at night to see the light at Rockefeller center and don't forget the ice skating. Be preparied for lots of traffic issues the day you leave. Lots of closed roads for new years so make sure you don't miss flight home.

    Time Square is a great place to visit to and is very crowded. Most people are nice enough but there are few who try to sell you trinkets for money, avoid them. Central park offers horse carriage rides, there is a short trip through part of the park and longer one through a larger part of the park. Central Park also has a zoo but they are very limited on what animals they have there as it is a very small zoo. Here is a link of store fronts to visit on a walk tour to see the Christmas Decorations.

    Don't forget the other non-Christmas things to-do - like the statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Empire State Building, Metropolitan Museum of Art, etc. Also get tickets to see the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall (only a few blocks away from the tree at Rockefeller Center). I was born in NYC and lived and worked there for many years - maybe I can answer some of your questions
