The holiday season in New York City is an incredibly festive and energetic experience. Tourists come from all over the world to see the tree at Rockefeller Center, The Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall and the lights at Saks on Fifth Avenue. Traffic continuously snarls the midtown streets and tour busses seemingly have free reign. Only the brave, or most experienced travelers take the subways, and many opt for taxi cabs or New York limousine service.
This also makes NYC a very hectic place for long-time residents of the tri-state area. Fortunately, many great holiday activities can be found outside the city limits in Long Island or Westchester. These range from holiday musical performances, to festive plays and Christmas markets. All these events are reachable via a professional New York Limo Service.
Christmas is on a Tuesday this year. This means that many employers have graciously closed their offices the week of the 24th. If that’s the case for you, it means some additional time to spend with your loved ones.
Below we’ve listed two events outside of New York City to take advantage of during the holiday, or post-holiday season.
Use New York City limousine service to Jones Beach Magic of Lights Drive-Through Show
Experience a Christmas light show like you’ve never seen before at Jones Beach State Park this holiday season. The event features greater than a mile-long display of festive LED lights and digital animations. Some displays include a candy cane crossing, reindeer sleighs and elves workings side-by-side with Santa Claus. The light display and animations are set to favorite holiday songs like “Oh Christmas Tree,” “The Night Before Christmas,” and “Winter Wonderland.”
The best part about this light display is that you don’t have to get out of your car to enjoy it. Braving the late-December temperatures is always difficult with a family. Instead, we encourage you to contact a limo car service in Long Island like Delux Worldwide Transportation to take you through the Magic of Lights Drive-Through in comfort. Our licensed chauffeurs can pick you up at your doorstep and ensure that everyone – even the typical family driver – enjoys the show.
Afterward, you are free to enjoy the Jones Beach Holiday Festival Village. The Village features vendors selling holiday goods, hot cocoa and desserts and of course the star of the attraction, Santa.
Tickets for the Magic of Lights Drive-Through are $25 from Monday through Thursday and $30 from Friday through Sunday. In the spirit of giving, any car that donates two canned food items on weekdays receives discounted admission.
Winter Wonderland at Kensico Dam Plaza
The Westchester Parks Foundation produces an annual Winter Wonderland held at Kensico Dam Plaza until January first. Dam Plaza is only about an hour from Midtown via a New York City limousine service and a lovely way to enjoy the festivities without the worry of doing the driving. Call today to learn more about Delux’s professional transportation service. 516-883-1900.
Winter Wonderland at Kensico Dam Plaza is a classic holiday fair staple many Westchester families partake in this time of the year. It features a holiday-themed circus, carnival rides, holiday shows, and an ice rink. Like the Holiday Festival Village at Jones Beach, the Winter Wonderland also hosts vendors selling hot food and drink. More traditional holiday vendors will also be in attendance if you need to get some last-minute shopping done.
Winter Wonderland culminates with a New Year’s Eve countdown and ball-drop celebration. Up until then, you can visit the Wonderland for $15 per person. After a full day of activities and shopping in the outdoors, trust a Tri-State limousine service to get you back home safely and efficiently.
Don’t settle for long lines and crowds in Manhattan this holiday season. Instead, spend precious time with your loved ones visiting outside the Tri-State area via New York City limousine service. For easy reservations, contact our dedicated 24/7 call service at (516) 883-1900.
