dThe city that never sleeps really comes to life around the holidays. If you’re planning a trip to the Big Apple, you’ve probably got a list a mile long of the sights you want to see while you’re here. Why don’t you consider hiring a holiday limo to ferry you from place to place so you can really enjoy the city in style? We’ve got all the best ideas for holiday stops all over Manhattan, so you won’t have to worry about missing a thing.

So, what should you see when you take a How a Long Island Limo can make your holiday better? Here are some of the highlights:


Perhaps the most magical part of Christmas is when those everyday department store windows are transformed into a magical winter wonderland. The stores are located all over the city, so you could spend all day seeking them out on foot. Or, if you’re thinking ahead, your limousine could carry you from one store to the next. Imagine the magic at Macy’s before you’re whisked to Bloomingdales. You also must make sure you see Saks Fifth Avenue, Barney’s, Bergdorf Goodman, and Lord and Taylor. If you don’t want to leave one out, start planning now.


One truly magical holiday activity is the horse and carriage ride through Central Park. The carriages come with thick blankets, so you can cozy up with someone special while you canter along on the paths. The best time to go is before dusk, so you can see all the magic happening around you. If you’re prepared, you might even have some hot chocolate on hand to sip as you ride. Your Chauffeur will wait while you enjoy the spirit of the season.


This iconic toy store can’t be included in your window tour because the magic of this stop is inside. Even the staidest among us will melt into childhood memories with the festive atmosphere on every floor. You may not have played with toys in decades, but you’ll want to get your hands on some of these. Don’t worry. They don’t mind if you enjoy yourself while you’re there.


The world-famous frozen hot chocolate might sound a little chilly for the season, but you can’t leave without trying one anyway. To keep your teeth from chattering, enjoy one of the hot sandwiches or pastries with your drink. You’ll love the atmosphere inside the restaurant, too. Even when Christmas isn’t around the corner, the place is always alive with fun energy, so you can only imagine how joyful a frozen hot chocolate can be during the holidays.


Who could leave the city without a visit to the famous skating rink underneath the gorgeous Christmas tree? Heralding angels direct visitors from all sides of the square to the main event. Even if you don’t want to lace up your skates, you can still absorb the happiness and excitement all around you. Don’t forget your camera, because this is something you won’t see just anywhere.


With all the attention focused on Rockefeller Center, many miss the Christmas shops at Bryant Park. The festivities have gained more attention in the past several years, which means, even more, shops from which to choose. You may also have a better chance of getting on the ice if you’re determined to skate among the skyscrapers. Of course, there are also plenty of café tables dotted around the park so you can simply sit and soak it all in.

Of course, New York has so much more to offer than these, what we consider the most important of holiday experiences. If you want to experience all the holiday activities, be sure to ask your Chauffeur for suggestions. No one knows the city better than we do, so you might even find yourself reveling in hotspots your friends have never heard of. What are you waiting for? We’re ready to take you on a whirlwind holiday tour.
