Become a tourist in your own city on Christmas Day


Whether you want to explore a new neighborhood in the city with your day off or need a reason to hit pause on all the indoor family time, Christmas day provides a chance for you to stretch your legs and revel in what will be the last day of spectacular holiday lights. Take a tour of the Dyker Heights lights on your own (tour companies are closed during Christmas) or sign up for one of Free Tours by Foot’s Midtown guided tour of Christmas lights and 5th Avenue storefront windows.

If you’ve seen enough mechanical Santas for 2019, from Dumbo to Harlem, this company has plenty of other walking tours around the city. Make sure to register in advance, bundle up, and bring cash to tip!
