The summer sun and heat now gives way to the fall colors and dropping leaves. Back to school bells have rung, and it’s time to buy fuel oil, firewood, and make sure someone is lined up to plow your driveway. Wintertime – in the North East! There is something nice about the chill in the air – soon the holiday spirit will float in like a refreshing mist that covers everyone. It will soon be the holiday season, and school break, time off from work, and a time to socialize with friends and family.
Wintertime in the North East is also a time for mini vacations and travel to see the sights, and there is perhaps no better destination than the Big Apple – New York City! Get to the city and walk through the winter wonderland. The tree at Rockefeller Center is a treat for the whole family. 30,000 bulbs illuminate the amazing fresh cut spruce and, it is a destination for out of town tourists and NYC residents alike. If you want to get the full effect, rent a pain of ice skates and circle the rink doing your best tricks for an audience of spectators, or for a more casual approach, get a cup of steaming hot chocolate an site in the downstairs café and watch others spin and twirl on the ice.
Manhattan Window (and Real) Shopping
The store windows on Fifth Avenue are a short walk away. They are all decorated and beautiful, and may compel you to go inside for the holiday bargains, and to shop for items that may not be found in your smaller home town area. 42nd Street has been revitalized into a Disney-like kid friendly part of downtown. From the M&M ‘s World to the huge Toys ‘R’ Us – there is excitement in the air.
