We know what you're thinking. Isn't it supposed to stay warm for Christmas?
Yes, it will. In fact, it'll be so warm next week for Christmas that we might break a record or two. But until then, there's this. Today, tonight, and tomorrow. Embrace it.
Because for the first time since we can remember all month long, it'll actually feel like Christmas. In December. In New York City. And for that, we are thankful. We think. Kinda sorta.
So what to do tonight once the temperatures drop to the thirties? Well, our free suggestions are here, and some holiday bucket list must-do's are right here, as well.
But that's just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. There's ice skating in Bryant Park, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park. Plus, a few more under-the-radar spots-- check them all out right here.
Holiday light displays are everywhere. Find out where the best of the best outer-borough displays are right here.
And we can't forget about the holiday markets and foods to go along with all of that outdoor activity, so be sure to check out our full list of holiday markets here.
All that being said, if you're more of the indoors person once it gets cold outside, there are a ton of holiday-themed restaurants and bars you need to check out before it's too late. (If those aren't enough, be sure to check out these.)
There's an amazing pop-up bar, there's a rooftop bar that'll make you feel like you're in an Italian ski lodge (no joke), and there are a ton more feel-good, holiday-themed bars and eateries all over New York City you should make reservations for ASAP.
But if you're more of an outer-borough kinda person once the weekend hits, we got you covered there, too.
Check out our Queens (P.S., we love Queens so much, there's more here), Brooklyn, Bronx, and Staten Island bucket lists to make sure you're doing each borough right.
So yeah. There's a lot going on. Get on it, New Yorkers, because there's no place like New York City for the holidays.
And to think, you were contemplating spending these last few days of December elsewhere!
