Day 1 : Arrive in the Big Apple

We fly to New York City to begin our wonderful holiday getaway.

Our superb accommodations for the next four evenings are in the Times Square, an essential focal point from where we'll begin each day exploring the city’s best known attractions, museums, and shops.

Day 2 : A City Tour & The Rockettes

Following breakfast, a local guide joins us for a tour of The Big Apple. The sights and sounds of New York City during the holiday season are truly a magical experience! See Rockefeller Center and its famous ice skating rink, the Lincoln Center Christmas Tree, and Grand Central Station. We also view the windows adorning the shops on 5th Avenue.

Following a delectable Holiday Vacations Welcome Lunch there is time for shopping or exploring midtown Manhattan.

This evening we’re guests at The Radio City Christmas Spectacular®, starring the world famous Radio City Rockettes®. Debuting in 1933, it is both brilliantly grand and genuinely moving – a glittering combination of old favorites and new delights. Enjoy the flawless precision of 140 people while they sing and dance in the legendary Parade of the Wooden Soldiers. Experience Santa’s magical ride to the North Pole, where life-size ragdolls come to life, and marvel at the stunning reenactment of the first Christmas as the Living Nativity unfolds before us on stage.

Breakfast, Lunch

Day 3 : The Nutcracker™

Our day begins with breakfast at the hotel.

This morning we cruise New York Harbor. Our excursion travels past Battery Park, Lower Manhattan, and Liberty Island for views of the Statue of Liberty, America’s best recognized symbol of freedom. The statue was given as a gift from France to commemorate liberty and friendship, dedicated on October 28, 1886. We also cruise past Ellis Island, former gateway to America for millions of immigrants.

The remainder of our afternoon is free for shopping at the Holiday Shops at Bryant Park and other leisure opportunities.

Tonight, we enjoy The Nutcracker™ performed by the New York City Ballet at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, this classic ballet will stay with you forever and warm your spirit. Beloved characters, gorgeous costumes, a one-ton Christmas tree that magically seems to never stop growing, an on-stage snow storm, and a 62-piece orchestra performing Tchaikovsky’s timeless music make this performance truly unforgettable.


Day 4 : The Empire State Building

After an included breakfast at the hotel we visit the observation deck of the Empire State Building, a landmark recognized the world over. First opened in 1931, the Empire State Building was the tallest building in the world and remained as such until the 1970’s.

We gather this afternoon and enjoy a special Holiday Vacations Farewell Lunch.

The remainder of the day is ours for independent exploration.

Breakfast, Lunch

Day 5 : Fly Home

We depart for home with lasting memories of New York City at this magical time of the year.
