San Diego Sun

Now San Diego doesn’t set the winter wonderland scene due to the climate, but it instils the Christmas spirit for those along the West coast with a variety of different events. This includes the Del Mar Snow ‘n’ Glow, which features snow tubing for all, a festive light display and private igloo hire. This festival runs throughout the Christmas period, from December 8, 2022, to January 1, 2023.

Another great family-friendly San Diego Christmas event is the San Diego Bay Parade of Lights. The theme for 2022 is “FantaSEA on the Bay” and includes a variety of colorful floats and boats. The event dates for this year are December 11, 2022, and December 18, 2022. We recommend arriving early to this parade to get the best view!

To finish December and Christmas in San Diego, why not enjoy the San Diego Holiday Bowl and Parade? Scheduled to go ahead on December 28 at 5pm, Petco Park, this festive celebration is perfect for the whole family. Street-side viewing is free, where you can take in the sights of balloons, floats, and magnificent marching bands.

This iconic market can be found at Dealey Plaza, and includes an entire month of gifts, surprises and candy, alongside traditional German foods.

The city of Chicago Christmas tree is also a sight to be seen this year. This giant 55-foot tree lights up Millennium Park and is the perfect sightseeing addition when going for a walk through the city.

This one-of-a-kind ice rink allows skaters to journey across the park in a series of bends and turns in an ice rink like no other. Make sure to pre-book your boots as the ice ribbon can get very busy over Christmas as is a high-demand event.

New York Christmas

For the ultimate holiday season this year, we saved the best until last for those wanting to explore Christmas to the fullest. Christmas events in NYC are popular and busy for both domestic and international travelers this year.

One of the traditional things to do in NYC for Christmas is the walk around a snowy Central Park and finding the Wollman ice rink. This leisurely stroll keeps you away from the hustle and bustle of Christmas shoppers but provides the perfect backdrop to the winter season.

Moving to Fifth Avenue, if you really want to splurge on your family and friends this year we recommend the walk down this famous street. From Louis Vuitton and Saks Fifth Avenue to Bergdorf Goodman, there’s always something for that special person. After browsing the shops, you will find yourself at the Rockefeller Christmas tree, which always reminds us of Home Alone 2! The Rockefeller tree is iconic at this time of year, and always worth viewing.

Christmas events in NYC also include the Bronx Zoo Winter Wonderland. From brightly lit animal lanterns, to live Christmas choirs, why not visit and enjoy the sights, s’mores and hot chocolate? Watch as the ice carvers work away on re-creating the Bronx Zoo animals, whilst taking in the sights and listening to your favourite Christmas songs along the way.
