My in-laws live about 2 hours from New York City. Since we would be visiting them with the kids during Christmas break, we decided it would be fun to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. I saw this show as a kid and loved it, and was anxious to take my own kids. We drove from their house into the city early on a Saturday morning, and the roads in Manhattan were deserted. Parking is expensive, but was easy to find.
The price tag for this show is CRAZY! Each ticket was over $100 and there were 7 of us! I was able to book the tickets using AmEx Membership Rewards points. This wasn’t the “best” value I could have gotten for those points, but since it was a time of year when cash flow isn’t the best, it was a very good value for us!
There is something really magical about Christmas in New York, and seeing the Rockettes at Radio City is quintessential Christmas to me!
