It’s the final month of the year…and my last agenda post for 2015! Where has this year gone? With 21 days until Christmas, most of this month will be consumed with holiday shopping. But there should be some fun activities planned, right?
Try: I’ve mentioned before that I was a competitive figure skater at one time in my childhood. And although I’ve been back on ice skates in recent years, I’ve never skated at any of the outdoor rinks in New York City. Here’s hoping that this will be the season that I am able to cross this item off my agenda during one of my upcoming New York City trips.
See: And since there will be some time spent in New York City this month, the tree at Rockefeller Center and window shopping is on the itinerary.
Go: I went to Lake Placid, New York last year around this time and absolutely loved getting away for a few days before the holidays. Although much colder than Long Island (and I’m not a cold weather person by any means), Lake Placid reminded me more of a fancy ski resort town, and made me forget I was still in New York. Skating on the Olympic speed skating oval, watching ski jumpers, and going down the Olympic bobsled run were just some of the highlights. I hope time permits for a similar trip again this year!
Do: Lots…and lots of shopping! Usually I look forward to shopping, but when faced with crowded stores and long lines, not so much. I plan on braving the stores earlier this year (and during the week!) to snag the holiday gifts on my list with little hassle. Call me old-fashioned, but I still prefer shopping in stores over online!
What’s on your agenda this month?
