Spending Christmas in New York is magical. From seeing the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree to ice skating in Central Park, you’ll find endless opportunities for holiday cheer.

Perhaps the best part of Christmas in the Big Apple is the festive shows. This year why not surprise your significant other — or the whole family — with tickets? Just pile in the car rental or van rental, and prepare for an enthralling experience. Below are some of the most notable performances.

A Christmas Story

Who can forget the iconic leg lamp or the official Red Ryder® BB gun? Come see this heartwarming Broadway rendition of the classic movie A Christmas Story. It’s playing in the theater at Madison Square Garden from December 11 to December 29. Tickets range from $56 to $256.

NYCB The Nutcracker

Enter into the world of a noble Nutcracker, a menacing Mouse King, and little Clara who steals everyone’s hearts. You’ll watch in awe as the dancers perform incredible feats, the tree grows from 12 feet to 40 feet, and the musicians play beautiful music. It’s not Christmas until you’ve seen The Nutcracker. You can attend this age-old ballet at the David H. Koch Center from November 29, 2013 to January 4, 2014. Ticket prices vary from $71 to $473.

Radio City Christmas Spectacular
