The Best Winter Activities to do in New York City

The holidays are here, and everyone has some extra time to spend with their friends and family. From relaxing to adventure, we’ve got you covered with all types of activities to fill your time this winter season. Make sure you grab your mask and your fave GDD bag and go try these fun activities!

1. Go Ice Skating in Bryant Park 


Ice skating in Bryant Park is a quintessential activity for the winter season. The ice rink in Bryant Park is open every day until March and stays open until 11:30 pm. This is the perfect spot to bring a loved one for a date night or even to bring the whole family for a fun day. The iridescent easy tote is the perfect bag to go ice skating with!

2. Visit the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree 


The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is always a hotspot during the holiday season in New York City. It stays lit up until mid-January and is definitely covid safe for the season. This spruce tree, which comes in at 75 feet tall and 45 feet wide, is truly a sight to see. We would totally bring our round puffy backpack in silver with us to go see the tree!

3. Play Around in the Museum of Ice Cream 


The Museum of Ice Cream is a fun spot to go with all of your friends and family. You get to sample all different types of ice cream while playing around in the fun ice cream themed rooms. The exhibits are totally insta worthy so a photoshoot is a must here. This year, they are celebrating “pinkmas” until January 10th with extra cute exhibits and activities. So make sure you grab your mint chip easy tote and head on over to the Museum of Ice Cream.

4. Relax at Sojo Spa Club


Located right outside of New York City, Sojo Spa Club is the perfect getaway to relax and rejuvenate. It has the prettiest views of the city that you can marvel at while relaxing at the spa. There are various treatments and activities to do while you're there to make your stay worthwhile. We would totally bring our iridescent puffle with us to the spa for a perfect day!

5. Gaze at the LuminoCity Festival 


The LuminoCity Festival is a captivating light show located on Randall's Island. It is truly a wonderland and incorporates all different types of light figurines into their intricate designs. It is open until January 10th and is definitely a must see this season. We would love to go see these lights with our maya backpack in bordeaux.

6. Reserve a Mini Cabin at Pier 17 


Pier 17 has transformed their rooftop into a covid-safe winter wonderland for the winter season. The greens at Pier 17 are filled with miniature cabins that can fit up to 10 people each. You can sip drinks, eat delicious food, and warm up in these socially distanced cabins. Grab your friends and family and make sure to reserve a cabin this season! Don’t forget to bring your black rose tote!

7. Sip Hot Chocolate at Dominique Ansel


Dominique Ansel is a classic New York City bakery and is a cute spot to hit during the winter season. Their hot chocolate features a blooming flower marshmallow that is totally insta worthy. So go warm up with a cup of rich hot chocolate from Dominique Ansel. We would definitely sip our hot chocolate with our easy tote 2 in black.

8. Admire the Saks Fifth Avenue Window Displays


The Saks Fifth Avenue window displays are always a favorite attraction each holiday season. They are always intricately designed and are so fun to look at! These windows are definitely the prettiest displays on the block. So grab your denim maya backpack and head to NYC to see this window display!

We hope you are enjoying this holiday season! How are you using your GDD bags? 

Till next time, xoxo.
