Christmas at Rockefeller Plaza 2019 πŸŽ„

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! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

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 πŸ™‚ I hope you all have a great week!
