Ice skating rink in Bryant Park

During this time of year, New York City offers one of a kind experience. Traditionally, we love to hit different places for shopping, entertainment, and some good old coffee. To begin our holiday adventure, we requested an uberX via the app to take us to Bryant Park for some fun ice skating which we love to do every Winter and recommend as an activity for the family, couples or friends. Additionally, you might want to check out the holiday market shops found throughout the park, which offer a variety of holiday-inspired items, good for a holiday last minute gift. Or you can choose a more convenient route like us and send your loved ones an Uber gift card directly from your phone to theirs thus avoiding any hassle of wrapping gifts.

After our time in Bryant Park, we decided to start a new tradition in our family by getting some ugly holiday this might sound a bit silly, but we think it'll keep up our holiday spirit at home. 

Now we like to take this opportunity to highlight a few things to do in New York City for a fun holiday experience.

  • Activity - going ice skating is a fun thing you can do, and remember you don't have to limit yourself just to Bryant Park, there are other rinks, we recommend checking the ones in Central Park for a scenic backdrop of the city.
  • Christmas Tree - most people choose to go to Rockefeller Center to see the Christmas tree and take beautiful photos. We suggest visiting a different one like that one in the Lote Palace Hotel, this one is less crowded and offers a unique architecture backdrop which is lovely.
  • Retail Therapy - retail stores are everywhere in New York City, the options are endless, but we like to suggest traveling downtown to SoHo and check out the unique boutiques, often you can find cute pieces that'll give a spark to your wardrobe.
