The Christmas spirit
Without a doubt, one of the best times to visit the Big Apple is at Christmas, since the Christmas spirit that lives there is incomparable: stained glass windows and decorated streets, discounts in shops and markets, the Rockefeller Center tree, the festivities in Times Square …
Another attraction of New York in winter is its incredible ice rinks. The most famous are at Rockefeller Cente r and Central Park, although you can find other indoor and outdoor tracks in other areas of the city.
During the winter, NYC Restaurant Week is also held . For a couple of weeks you will have the opportunity to visit some of the most prestigious restaurants in the city, where you can enjoy a 3-course meal at very affordable prices. Of course, you have to reserve the tables in advance.
Go to the theater
If one of your goals when traveling to New York is to go to the theater, you should know that in winter it is easier to get tickets for the wide billboard that Broadway theaters offer.
Finally, it is worth traveling to New York in winter just to see parks like Central Park, Washington Square or Brooklyn Prospect Park covered in snow.
