With a twinkling Christmas tree, holiday market, and a 17,000 square-foot ice skating rink, it’s no wonder why Bryant Park is such a popular winter destination. Admission to the rink is free, but visitors will need to make a reservation in advance and pay a fee to rent skates and learn-to-skate equipment on site. After you wrap up on the ice, the Bank of America Winter Village has plenty to offer including a market with more than 170 vendors that’s perfect for holiday shopping, a lodge with post-skate hot cocoa and other treats, and a curling experience where you can try your hand at the sport and kick back in a cozy hut afterward.
Price: Skating admission is free. Skate rentals are $15-$45.
Hours: Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 10 pm; Friday through Sunday from 8 am to 11:30 pm
