Your NYC Holiday Guide
It’s the most wonderful time of the year—especially if you live in (or are visiting) NYC. Holiday cheer can be found around every corner, from window displays and lights to pop-up markets and skating rinks. This year, be sure to venture out and soak up the spirit of the season. Here are our favorite ways to enjoy the holidays in NYC:
Brave Rockefeller Center
Don’t let your fear of tourists prevent you from visiting Rockefeller Center during the holiday season. Shuffle through the crowds and get a glimpse of the giant, magnificent tree, lit up in all its glory. Once you’ve taken it all in, head up to the top of 30 Rock to enjoy a cocktail at SixtyFive.
Visit Miracle on 9th Street
East Village bar Mace turns into Miracle On 9th Street during the holiday season and serves up some of the most festive boozy concoctions south of the North Pole. Stop in for a Jingle Bell Nog or Christmas Tree Gimlet and you’ll be as jolly as can be.
Slip on Skates
Spend an afternoon at one of the city’s ice skating rinks. Whether you join the masses at Wollman Rink in Central Park or entertain hotel guests at The Standard, your inner child will thank you as soon as you lace up and hit the ice.
Dine at Rolf’s German Restaurant
Ornaments, lights, wreaths, garlands—Rolf’s has some of the most impressive holiday decor around. The food is good, too!
Crack a Nut
If you love the The Nutcracker, we highly encourage you to grab tickets to New York City Ballet’s The Nutcracker or Brooklyn Academy of Music’s The Hard Nut (or both!). The first is a traditional performance of Tschaikovsky’s original score, while the latter is a retro-modern take on the classic. Can’t go wrong with either.
Walk by the Windows on 5th
Sure, you can also venture into the store, but often the holiday windows are more exciting than the merchandise inside. Be sure to stroll up and down both sides of the street from Rockefeller Center all the way up to 59th Street. Highlights always include Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Tiffany & Co.
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
