The Wollman Rink at Central Park is the perfect place to go for a twirl. Opened in 1949, the rink offers ice hockey, a skating school, party facilities, and skate rentals.

The German restaurant is located in the city’s Gramercy Park neighborhood and is decked out in lights and decor for the holidays until May. Rolf’s serves up lots of German beer, Wiener Schnitzel, Jaeger Schnitzel and Paprika Schnitzel. You can also find dishes such as sausage platters, meatloaf, pork chops, steamed mussels and apple crepes at the joint. A seasonal roast suckling pig is also served, and there are crispy potato pancakes and wursts resembling hot dogs to keep the kids happy. Expect a bit of a wait to be seated, especially during the holidays.
Located just off Fifth Avenue, it’s considered as one of the best restaurants in the world and has one Michelin star — but during the holidays, you’ll want to stop by Betony specifically for its 35-seat bar. The bar has on the menu Mister Crane and a delicious hot chocolate.
