My husband and I live in New York and won't be able to join our families for either Thanksgiving or Christmas. But that means we get to experience everything NYC has to offer for the holidays.
We need suggestions, no matter how cliché or touristy. Here's our list so far:
--Seeing the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade (tips for good viewing spots?)
--Ice skating in Central Park/Bryant Park
--Checking out the tree at Rockefeller Center and the department store windows
What else should we do?
We draw the line at New Year's Eve in Times Square, but otherwise we're open to most everything. Neither of us is religious but, if there's some truly spectacular religious event we should experience, we're open to that, too.
