Few places rival New York City for winter holiday activities, and the school break offers families plenty of free time to sample them all.
There's no need to leave town: We’ve rounded up 35 of our favorite seasonal activities, most of which can be accessed with the swipe of a MetroCard. Fill your vacation with awesome museum outings, live stage shows, fancy meals, and magical holiday experiences. Our family even braves the crowds at popular tourist attractions such as the Rockefeller Center tree and rink and department store holiday windows.
