New York, New York - USA
New York is a ity that is still great fun in the cold, so if you are looking for a break in the winter then why not take a trip in December and see the Christmas lights and festivities. You can fly into JFK or Newark, and You shouldn't go to New York without visiting the empire state building. You can see as far as Connecticut and Pennsylvania on clear days, and even when its a little foggy you can see the whole of the city. Visit central park to go to the zoo, skate in one of the two ice rinks or simply just go for a walk. The Brooklyn bridge is another crowd pleaser, as it is an iconic symbol of the city and takes in views of all over New York.
There are lots of other great things to do in the city if you don't want to do any sightseeing, so why not try visiting tiffany for some gorgeous diamonds, or the world famous Bloomingdales for fragrance, cosmetics and designer clothes. Shop here to your heart's content and then stop for some food within the store.
On Madison Avenue you will see some of the big designer names like Matthew Williamson and Gucci, and Nolita offers some gorgeous boutiques for up and coming designers. In these shops you can bag a bargain and wear clothes that no one else will be wearing at home.
