If you’re lucky enough to be in New York City during the holiday season, then you need to spend your time there like a local. While many of the holiday trappings in NYC are geared for tourists, there are plenty of fun things that locals like to take part in during that happy period between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Columbus Circle Holiday Market

Warm up with hot chocolate and some tummy-warming street foods from local food vendors. Finish up your morning with delectable Artisan chocolates and truffles before you head back to your cozy quarters.
