Bumper Cars on Ice – Through March 4
Bumper Cars at Bryant Park are not your typical bumper cars… they’re on ice. Bump, slide, and spin on a 17,000 square foot ice rink. No skates needed! Be sure to reserve online in advance though because these Bumper Cars book up quickly.
Winter Spa at the William Vale Hotel – Through March
Why not pamper yourself at a winter spa in NYC. The Winter Spa at the William Vale Hotel in Brooklyn is a Scandinavian-inspired experience with a private red cedar sauna and hot tub. This Winter Spa is the perfect way to detox, recharge, and reset for the New Year, or treat yourselves with a couple’s treatment. Great for Valentine’s Day!
