6. Holiday Tours at the New York Botanical Garden

Sadly, Bar Car Nights — the 21+, after-dark viewing of the New York Botanical Garden Holiday Train Show — is sold out for December 22, but there are plenty of other activities taking place there. Enjoy some Christmas classics with NYBG’s holiday film screenings, listen to a few a cappella jams and embark on a Winter Wonderland Tree Tour.

All these events are taking place over Christmas weekend, so make sure to check the NYBG schedule for related programming. Otherwise, simply opt for a pleasant stroll through the Gardens.
