Hi friends, welcome back! Can you believe we’re in the single digit countdown until Christmas!? This past weekend was my last weekend in NYC before Christmas so Jon and I crossed off the biggest item on my NYC Christmas bucket list, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree! I’ll be honest, we’ve been procrastinating on seeing this tree because it’s quite a feat. You have to be mentally prepared for the crowds and hardly being able to move. The tree is a tourist’s paradise, but it’s a must see!
On our walk over to the tree from the subway, we passed by these giant ornaments.
Jon and I were on a mission to get a picture of the tree and then escape the crowds. Mission accomplished! 🙌🏻
We then walked down a very congested Fifth Avenue so that we could see the Plaza Hotel. Unfortunately, you must be a resident/guest to gain access ☹️ But nonetheless, we still wandered across some great decorations! This is the Cartier store, very fancy!
The Peninsula Hotel also has a great Christmas Display.
At this point in the day (about two hours in), Jon and I were drained, but I really wanted to see the Saks Fifth Avenue light show, so we walked back to Rockefeller and caught the show. It only lasted a few minutes, but it was neat to see!
Jon and I were exhausted when we got home and finished the night watching Home Alone 2 🙂 I hope you all have a great week!
