5 reasons why you should spend Christmas & New Year in New York
5 reasons why you should spend Christmas & New Year in New York.
NYC is a fantastic destination all year around, but there’s just something even more magical about the Big Apple when the snow starts to fall and Christmas cheer infiltrates the city’s avenues, bars and cafes.
For one, is there nothing more beautiful than a white Christmas? And for two, well, it’s New York City – enough said, right? Well, just in case these two reasons aren’t enough to convince you to head over this year, then get this: Our 11-day Christmas Magic & New York New Year guided holiday (from 23 December 2016 to 2 January 2017) is currently on special. That’s another reason why you should definitely book this last-minute holiday to the Big Apple this year! But just in case you’re still not convinced, here’s another five reasons why you should celebrate Christmas and bring in 2017 in New York.
1. YOU’LL SEE ALL OF NYC’S FAMOUS SIGHTS IN A FESTIVE LIGHT
New York City is a city that never sleeps, and never goes on holiday. And that’s fantastic for travellers, as not only does it mean that all the city’s main sights and attractions will be open during this time of year (including Battery Park and the Empire State Building), but it also means that guests travelling with Trafalgar will be able to experience them in a festive light – which will most probably include snowfall! Plus, nothing encapsulates Christmas more than a horse-drawn carriage ride in Mystic Seaport, which is included in the itinerary.
2. YOU’LL SPEND CHRISTMAS IN BEAUTIFUL NEW HAMPSHIRE
If you’re hoping for a white Christmas this year, then you’re in for a treat with Trafalgar. Staying at the authentic Red Jacket Mountain View hotel in New Hampshire for two nights, it really doesn’t get any more beautiful than this.
Not only will you be able to relax and unwind whilst enjoying the gorgeous scenery here, but the hotel’s proximity to the nearby Cranmore Mountain Resort means you can spend a few hours skiing or snowboarding on the slopes in between your included Christmas Brunch and Dinner!
3. YOU’LL GAIN A UNIQUE INSIGHT INTO NYC
On this tour, you’ll be able to experience NYC and the east coast in a unique way. For example, in NYC and Boston, you’ll meet a local specialist and learn all about the two cities from someone who was born and raised there. And up in the town of Yarmouth, you’ll visit the DeLorme headquarters to view ‘Eartha’, the world’s largest revolving and rotating globe.
4. YOU CAN SHOP TO YOUR HEART’S CONTENT
The USA already offers great-value shopping for travellers all year round.
So you can imagine the savings to be had on Boxing Day, when the Freeport USA shopping outlet opens its doors for one truly magnificent sale – indeed, if you enjoy shopping, this is going to be your Christmas day!
Warning: You may come back with more luggage than you bargained for…
5. YOU’LL EXPERIENCE THE BEST NYE PARTY IN THE WORLD
When it comes to New Year's Eve celebrations, it doesn’t get much better than in NYC.
On this tour, you will be able to bring in 2017 in true style and create memories that will last a lifetime. Starting off with a fantastic dinner and drinks at a local restaurant, guests will then be given a ‘ball drop’ pass, giving them access to the city during the final hours of 2016.
