The Most Magical Time of Year in NYC

There’s no reason to be cooped up or bored in the house this season. The winter-holiday is one of the happiest times in New York City. Whether you are living in the city or just visiting, NYC is the place to be! There are holiday concerts and shows, bars and restaurants with festive décor, and plenty of activities including holiday shops. If you want to go out with friends or family, you are sure to find something that gets you excited about the holidays. Check out a few of my favorites below!
