The Pond

Need something cheap and fun to do in New York City this winter? Visit The Pond and the Holiday Shops at Bryant Park!
Ice-skating is free (and only $12 for rental skates) and it is not as much of a tourist trap as Rockefeller Center is during the upcoming months.

It was a spur-of-the-moment decision (and I was slightly nervous since I had only been skating one other time), but my friends and I had a great time when we went the night it opened!

What will you be doing in NYC this winter??
