Christmastime in New York City
Before I head out on my next adventure (I’m heading to Disney World next week then I’m going on my first Disney Cruise on January 2), I wanted to give you guys a little “recap” of my last trip, to New York City. Although I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with New York City, I always have a blast there during the holiday season. I love getting to see all of the amazing Christmas decorations and holiday window displays throughout the city. I also love all the fun and festive winter activities there are to do! (I know it’s technically still fall but bear with me).

Here’s a little recap of my trip to New York City:

Saks Fifth Avenue Holiday Windows
One of my top priorities while in New York City was making sure I got to see Saks Fifth Avenue’s Snow White themed holiday window displays. In fact, I wrote a whole post about Saks Fifth Avenue’s amazing holiday window displays! You can check out that post (and see more detailed photos of the windows displays) HERE.Christmastime in New York CityChristmastime in New York CityChristmastime in New York CityChristmastime in New York CityChristmastime in New York CityChristmastime in New York CityChristmastime in New York City
Saks Fifth Avenue wasn’t the only department store with amazing holiday window displays. I also really enjoyed the holiday window displays at Macy’s, Barneys, Lord & Taylor and Bloomingdale’s. Raclette New York CityRaclette New York City
No trip is complete without trying out a new restaurant, am I right? During my trip to New York I had dinner at Raclette one night and it was amazing. Raclette is a rustic-chic eatery in the East Village offering upscale grilled cheese sandwiches, tartines & international raclettes. Christmastime in New York CityChristmastime in New York City
While in NYC I got to attend a live taping of Late Night with Seth Meyers. It was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. I hadn’t been to Rockefeller Center since I attended a SNL live taping back in 2015 so it was fun being back at 30 Rock!

(Side Note: That was truly one of the best days EVER! Attending an SNL live taping was something I’d dreamed about since I was a little girl).

Seth Meyers was SO nice and humble! He chatted with the audience and answers questions for about six minutes while the crew was setting up for the musical guest. Christmastime in New York CityChristmastime in New York CityHarry Potter and the Cursed Child Broadway NYC
I definitely plan on visiting NYC next spring to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway. While I was in Paris last December I was going to stop by London and see it but tickets were sold out. Christmastime in New York CityChristmastime in New York CityChristmastime in New York City

I love a good holiday market! I picked up quite a few last minute Christmas gifts at the Columbus Circle Holiday Market.

Until next time NYC!
