If you’re planning a winter break to New York City, there are lots of fun festive things to do, but one of our favourite ways to get in the Christmas spirit has to be ice skating in Central Park!

That’s right, you can now book tickets for ice skating in Central Park. The rink will open on 26th October and the good news is, it will remain open until 7th April, so if you’re not visiting over Christmas, you still have plenty of time to pay a visit.
The famous Wollman Rink has been a favourite with New Yorkers and tourists alike, ever since it first opened back in 1949. It’s amazing Central Park location means you not only get to admire the stunning surroundings of the park while you skate, but also the towering city skyscrapers all around you. This really is a magical experience that’s not to be missed!
