One of the best things about living in New York is experiencing it during the holidays. It's truly a magical time of year and I love every second of it. If you have never been before, make sure it is on your to-do list! There are so many great places to stay, awesome things to do and delicious places to eat (like normal) but this time around it's all Christmas themed. What could be better?

Well today (as a sneak peek of what's to come on the blog starting NEXT WEEK) I'm sharing my top 10 favorite things to do in New York City this Christmas. I hope you love it!!

Hotels:

1. Lotte New York Palace - my favorite place (and tree) in the city! Stray away from the crowds, this is the best kept tourist secret... that is if you've never seen Gossip Girl. 

2. The Waldorf - What could be more classic than the Waldorf in NYC? Their decor is so decadent and elegant. They can come decorate my place anytime! 

3. The Peninsula - Talk about impressive decor inside and out. Have you ever seen a giant chocolate snowman in person? #YUM

4. The Plaza - The Plaza is seriously amazing all year round but it's even better during the holiday season. There are too many Christmas trees to count!

Food:

5. Serendipity - Make sure to call for reservations in advance! While the two hour wait time is pretty serious, it's 100% worth it. The food is actually delicious and you must try their frozen hot chocolate!

6. Rolfs - If you really want to get in the spirit, stop by Rolfs. It looks like the place threw up Christmas decor and it's totally awesome. But remember they're known for their holiday decor and not their food!

7. Chelsea Market - A personal favorite all year round, Chelsea Market has all the food you could ever want with a beautiful showing of thousands of Christmas lights.

Activities:

8. Ice Skating (Central Park, Bryant Park, The Standard or Rock Center- There is no shortage of rinks in the city come December 1st but each have their ups and downs. I personally love the one in Central Park. What is more New York than that? 

9. Rockefeller Center - The MUST do thing on this list. It's like a whole block in the heart of the Christmas spirit. The tree is huge, the light show is amazing, the shops windows are around the corner and yes, there is a rink. Just be aware it's busy 24/7 (for good reasons).

10. Seeing a show (Broadway, The Nutcracker, Radio City Christmas Spectacular...) - What's NYC without a show? I'm partial to Broadway but if you really want to get in the spirit of Christmas head over to Radio City or up the street to see the Nutcracker.

This list is short and sweet for those of you just asking for recommendations this holiday season! Check back Monday for the start of "12 Days of NYC Christmas" series where I'll stop by all these amazing places, show you more beautiful photos and share more in depth recaps from each stop. YAY!
