1. Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree: Not to be missed! I see it every morning on the Today Show, but I got to see it in person!

|Each house is a "holiday shop" full of souvenirs! They sold everything from food (chocolate, mac 'n' cheese) to jewelry to ornaments to scarves and hats...Great for gifts! Image found here.|
3. Saks Fifth Avenue Light Show: We had never seen this before, and we just happened upon it! I think the show happens about every 10 minutes, and because of the crazy crowds, you were probably going to be standing on the sidewalk for 10 minutes anyway because you couldn't move! The light show was really incredible. Check out this video:
4. The NHL Store: Since my dad is a huge hockey fan, of course we had to stop by the NHL store! I think my favorite item were the hockey Legos: I didn't know such a thing existed!
|If you want ice hockey merchandise (including $400 jerseys!), this is the place to go! Image found here.|
|How cute! Even the mascots are included! Screen shot from here.|
We were only in New York for less than two days, so unfortunately we didn't get to see too much. But despite ALL the tourists, I still recommend seeing NYC in the Christmas spirit!
