Here are the five best things you can do to enjoy snow in NYC:

1. Take a walk in Central Park

Who hasn't dreamed of walking in Central Park on a nice snowy day, as long as the snow isn't too deep. There's nothing quite like admiring the ice hanging off the tree branches. If you are a couple, it is a good time for cuddling during a romantic walk in this picturesque landscape. If it's you, yourself and I; don't worry you can still feel refreshed and uplifted while breathing in the fresh, cold air and devouring the beauty that surrounds you!

2. Go ice skating

While in Central Park, you can also go ice skating at the park's Wollman Rink. It is quite popular and a must visit spot. However, if you want to avoid the crowds, head to one of New York City's many other rinks, including Rockefeller Center, Brookfield Place, and even beneath the Brooklyn Bridge.

3. Go sledding

There are plenty of hills around town where you can slip and slide in the snow. A few favorites include Pilgrim Hill on the east side of Central Park, Inwood Hill Park, and Fort Greene Park. Kids will love it! So will you.

4. Relax in a winter spa

Do it like the Scandinavians and truly embrace the winter weather at an outdoor spa. Warm up in a dreamy cedar sauna at The Rockaway Hotel and soak in a hot tub under the stars at The William Vale. Or... visit the incredible massive rooftop hot tub at the JFK that is overlooking the runway, there is nothing quite like that!

5. Warm up with a hot chocolate

Finally, if you want to do something less... adventurous, just visit your favorite local coffee place and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa alone or with your besties, alongside a massive chocolate chip cookie or a large croissant with hot melting chocolate. Yummie!

It's so beautiful out there and it is one of the best times to enjoy New York City to its fullest! Have fun!
