5. Brooklyn: Private Customized Holiday Tour with Warm Drink
Just over the Brooklyn Bridge is a winter wonderland waiting to be explored…Experience a real New Yorker’s Christmas as you take part in the local tradition of visiting Dyker Heights to see the most dazzling lights and browsing festive markets, hot chocolate in hand.
Join a like-minded local host to explore Brooklyn in all its festive glory and visit the local neighborhoods of Dyker Heights and Bay Ridge, where local residents put on the most spectacular (and extravagant) Christmas light displays in the city.
Local residents here take their light displays seriously, so as you stroll through the neighbourhoods you’ll see dazzling lights and festive scenes glittering in front of every house.
If this wasn’t enough to get you in the festive spirit, explore a Christmas market like Brooklyn Makers Holiday Market or the Brooklyn Holiday Bazaar, where you can eat, drink and be merry as you pick of some Christmas gifts made by local artists and designers.
See the Manhattan skyline glittering across the water, and get some tips and tricks from your local for other festive things to do in the city during the rest of your trip.
CityUnscripted connects curious travellers to locals who are interesting and sociable people, who know the city well and who love to share their favorite places. They are not tour guides by profession. The guide recreates the feeling of having a friend in every city you visit; someone who can show you the places you’ll fall in love with and help you to connect with the most authentic soul of a place.
Book this meet-up and the CityUnscripted team will contact you within 24 hours and ask you questions about your preferences and interests, so they can match you with the right profile and assign a like-minded local New Yorker.
Keeping in mind your personal answers, your local host will put together a bespoke itinerary just for you. Please note that this will be outlined but flexible. Your host will arrange the most convenient meeting place for you. If you feel like changing direction during the meet-up, or if your local host believes that you'd enjoy a sight or different experience, he/she will suggest and discuss with you changes to the itinerary.
