New York City is a great place to be any time of year, but there is that something extra special about it that happens during the winter time. The city lights up with so many amazing things to do, see, eat and more that it’s hard to not have a great time while living or visiting here. Winter festivals happen to be a big aspect to what makes this area so great, as there are plenty coming up that are worth the visit and then some.

Take a look at a couple of upcoming winter festivals that you are going to want to RSVP at ASAP.
