Winter Wonderland in NYC

I made the most of the cold NYC weather by hitting all the holiday hot spots and stopping to shop and snack along the way!

Brunch at Alice's Tea Cup

Alice's Tea Cup, Chapter 3, East 81st Street, New York, NY, United States

Alice's Tea Cup is the CUTEST way to warm up before a cold day. They have a huge assortment of teas to have your very own tea party, complete with homemade scones, salads, sandwiches and desserts. We got the tea for two which came with unlimited tea and SO much food. Make sure to get a reservation in advance, and go hungry! They have 3 locations spread around the city.

Museum Mile

Museum Mile, New York, NY, United States

Museum Mile in NYC is home to many famous museums. I went to the Jewish Museum, but nearby is also the Met, the Guggenheim and more. Perfect to hide from the snow for awhile!

Stroll Around Central Park

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, New York, NY, United States

If you can bear the cold, bundle up and take a stroll around the reservoir in Central Park. The views are amazing. It takes about 25 minutes to go once around, but you can also venture off to see nearby landmarks in the park like Belvedere Castle and the Alice in Wonderland statue.

The Windows at Saks

Saks Fifth Avenue, New York, NY, United States

Saks Fifth Ave always amazes with their holiday window display. VERY touristy and crowded but always worth it. Every 30 minutes there's also a beautiful light show.

Tree Time

Rockefeller Center, Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY, United States

Just a short walk from Saks is the tree at Rockefeller Center. Weather permitting, go ice skating too!

Subway All Day

Grand Central Terminal, East 42nd Street, New York, NY, United States

Even when the weather is bad, the subways still run! Expect some delays, but the subway is a safe and fast way to get around in the snow.
