Hi friends, happy Monday! It sure was chilly in NYC this weekend, but we made it to my favorite tree in New York City at the Bryant Park Winter Village! The whole block becomes transformed into a fun winter village and it’s so festive and cheery. This is also my favorite tree because it’s decorated with red, white, and blue whereas the tree at Rockefeller only has colored lights.
Jon and I have been going to this tree for three years and this year we went on a Sunday afternoon so there was more room to walk around and the lines weren’t as long. I’d highly recommend not going on a Friday or Saturday night if you hate crowds.
There’s also a giant skating rink in the middle that’s fun to watch. It’s extremely crowded so I’d recommend going to Central Park if you want a better skating experience in the city.
Another great thing about Bryant Park is the little Christmas shops. They have everything from candles, to ornaments and wine stoppers. I haven’t bought anything from there, but it’s fun to window shop 🙂
My favorite thing to get at Bryant Park is this s’mores chimney cake! We got the same one last year and it was just as good! It’s the perfect treat on a chilly day, and the perfect snack to split to prevent a sugar rush.
Hopefully by now I’ve convinced you that if you come to NYC in the winter (or live here), you absolutely must add Bryant Park to your list!
