New York City Never Looked This Good: Holidays & The City (Part 1)

I know many of us stayed home this holiday season. But I thought it would be fun to take you on a tour of New York City during the holidays.

New York City is truely a magical place. I love this city. I fell in love with it instantly while I was on vacation here with a few of my friends.

New York has personality and that personality changes with every season. I don't particularly like cold weather but NYC lit up for the holidays is like a stunning bride on her wedding day... glowing.

My friend Bethsy had never been to NYC. In fact, she had never seen snow! So she hopped on a plane and came to spend 2 fabulous weeks with moi in the City that Never Sleeps.

She arrived on the evening of Dec. 24th. I make tacos every year for Christmas dinner. We had a Mexican fiesta and too many Margaritas to count. We had so many, no one even remembered to take a single picture! So you are just going to have to use your imaginations on this one.

On Christmas Day, after breakfast in our PJs and exchanging gifts, we set out to explore the city while Hubby stayed home with Sophia.

The streets were filled with people, mostly because all of the stores were closed, but we managed to get a few sights in.

That's my friend Bethsy and her cousin in front of a church on Broadway and 10th Street.

Bethsy and me @ Time Square

This picture is a little blurry but you can see how packed Time Square was that day.
That thing in the middle is the Broadway shows ticket sales booth.

Then we had a drink to celebrate the occasion at Planet Hollywood in Time Square.

So there you have it. Christmas Day in NYC. But we were just getting started. This was probably the most boring day of all the days we spent together in this great city.

Remember that I am posting EVERY DAY for 30 DAYS, and I have 500 pics worth of stories to tell you! Today is only day 5 of my month of blogging and I have tons of goodies in my bloggy bag to share with you.

  1. Yay, the start of my tour! I used to visit NY often when I was a kid as one set of my grandparents lived there. But I don't really remember a lot of it and I can't recall ever being there at Christmas.
