My New York City winter itinerary - a festive 48 hours in The Big Apple

In December 2022 we (my husband and I) went to New York City - it's been on my bucket list since I was 10 years old, so it's been a long time coming!

The Holiday Season (as New Yorkers refer to the Christmas period) in New York is as spectacular as it is iconic. Trees draped in decorations, festive music playing and chestnuts roasting on every street corner. The legendary Rockettes live on Broadway, Christmas parades, and ice skaters gliding effortlessly through Central Park. And, if you're lucky, snow falling over the city that never sleeps. Especially over the holidays.

But with so much to see and do in just a few days, which sites, attractions and experiences should you prioritise?

My TOP TIP for you is to start by making a list of everything in NYC you don't want to leave without seeing. Then you can plan your days based on which parts of the city those "must see" spots are located in. Divide the city into midtown, lower Manhattan, Upper East Side etc and aim to visit each area per day.

And to further help you, especially if it's your first trip to New York, I've compiled this weekend itinerary, packed with what to do in The Big Apple in winter.
