Time to Plan your Christmas Vacation to NYC

Christmas is an exciting time in a big city. Rent a timeshare in downtown New York City, and start a new holiday tradition of a family Christmas vacation in the Big Apple. New York City during Christmas is dazzling and fun and unique.

A well known NYC Christmas icon is the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. Topped with a simple glittering star, this giant tree, which averages 65 feet high, is covered with over 5 miles of lights. The lighting of the tree is open to the public and unofficially opens the Christmas season in NYC. The tree lighting is December 2, 2009 and can be viewed through January 7, 2010.

A great family activity is ice skating at the Rockefeller Center skating rink, which has been open since 1936. It's a bit pricey, but your family will have the experience of a lifetime skating on this famous rink surrounded by sparkling Christmas decorations.

Plan to be bedazzled at the Holiday Lights at the Bronx Zoo, where you'll see over a hundred animal and holiday sculptures covered in Christmas lights. While at the zoo you can also enjoy the Holiday Express Train and the ever popular Polar Bear Express Experience. Or take a ride with Clydesdales Ranger, Jesse, and Monty as they tour through the zoo pulling a festive wagon.

The "Singing Christmas Tree" at South Street Seaport is a free event with 2 shows a day each weekend through December. The Big Apple Choir will put a Christmas song in your heart and a big grin on your face as you enjoy this must see "funny choir with good voices."

For a free ice skating experience, the Pond at Bryant Park is the only ice skating venue in the city that does not charge admission. And skate rentals are a reasonable $12.00. The Pond is in a prime downtown location, with unprecedented views of both the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building.

Grand Central Terminal exhibits a dazzling laser Christmas light display on its walls, pillars and famous Sky Ceiling. Take a shuttle down and pop in - it's free, fascinating and full of holiday cheer.

Renting a New York City timeshare is a wonderful Christmas present that your family will remember for a long time to come. Isn't that what Christmas memories are all about?

    We just booked a timeshare rental at the Manhattan Club for just $140/night. This will be a very exciting Christmas trip.
