Holidays are happening in New York

Kaylee Hovan, Out and About Editor

The holidays are a time of year to spend with your family and friends. There are many things to do but the best would be visiting New York City.
There are many things to do in New York City such as ice skating or seeing the 5th Avenue Holiday window displays, but, if you really enjoy sightseeing, you should definitely go see the Rockefeller Christmas Tree.
The Rockefeller Christmas Tree will be lit and on display between West 48th and 51st Street, and Fifth and Sixth Avenues. The Center is open daily from 6am to 12am from December 4, 2019 to January 17, 2020. Make sure to visit this magnificent Christmas tree and family friendly NYC holiday sight.
Another thing you might want to do during the holidays in NYC is see “The Nutcracker” Ballet Show. Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” is a must see for many people during the holidays. The classic ballet is performed at David H. Koch Theatre at the Lincoln Center every year. It starts November 29, 2019 and runs to January 5, 2020. Ticket prices range from $60-$300.
If you want to see this show, get tickets quickly before they sell out.
There’s more to do in New York City even if you’re not into sightseeing or shows. One place you can visit is the Union Square Holiday Market. The Union Square Holiday Market is a calm, family-friendly area during the holidays if you aren’t the touristy type of person.
The Union Square Holiday Market has many vendors from the New York City such as Ramaya Designs, Shan Shui Gallery of Fine Arts, and Bruce Julian Heritage Foods.
The Market has plenty of vendors you can enjoy with your family. Adding to the plenty of vendors from whom you can purchase goods, there will also be new sections such as a warming lounge station, and live music. The Union Square Holiday Market will be open from November 21- December 24,2019, Monday to Friday from 11am to 8pm, and Saturday to Sunday from 10am 8pm.
The holidays are an amazing time to spend time with family and friends, but it’s also an awesome time to go to New York City. You’ll enjoy NYC so much during the holidays, that you won’t want to leave.
