Sightseeing During the Winter in New York City

The holidays may be over, but that doesn’t mean your sightseeing has to end! New York City has so much to offer in every season, especially in the winter. From free ice skating at Bryant Park (bring your own, or rent skates!) to taking a long leisurely stroll through the MET, there is something for everyone.

During the winter, the cities skyscrapers look especially magical; this is why we suggest checking out the Empire State Building from the Top of the Rock Observatory. The NYC skyline is one of the best views in the world. People come from all over the world to see this wonderful city light up, and with the Observatory being open until Midnight; your big city dreams can come true, 850 feet above street level. Tip: Go right before sunset. This way you can see the city during the day and night, and have photos to share for years to come.

As the snow continues to fall, and the days stay chilly, it’s always smart to have a backup sightseeing plan! Some days you may not want to be as tall as the buildings, and that’s why visiting Madame Tussauds Wax Museum is a great alternative! The museum has over 200 wax figures resembling some of your favorite celebrities. Did you know that the artists apply each hair by hand, and celebrities often donate their own clothes for the display? Hours upon hours go into each figure; it’s a site to see for yourself!
