If you’re looking for something fun to do for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Eve this year, I’d like to suggest a weekend getaway to New York City. You won’t believe all of the exciting events the city has lined up for the end of year holidays! Check them out below:

The Macy’s Day Parade and Balloon Inflation Parties

You’ve probably seen the Macy’s Day Parade on television from home, but imagine seeing those amazing large balloons and all of the excitement live, in person. I’ve even got an extra special opportunity available for you to see how the parade comes together! You can watch these massive balloons get inflated and get some photo opps that aren’t always available to the general public. And, there are VIP parade viewing parties available as well.

Rainy Days While on Vacation | Ingenious TravelGood weather is not always guaranteed when you are on vacation. Even if you are traveling in the right season, there is no telling what nature has in store for you when you get to your destination. If you do wake up to a rainy day, don’t spend the hours sulking in your hotel room. There are plenty of things you can do to enjoy your day even if it is raining cats and dogs outside.

If the rain thwarts your plan of walking around and exploring the sights, be flexible and find other opportunities to learn more about your destination. You can also visit a local restaurant or cafe and spend time interacting with the regulars. You will be surprised at how time flies really fast when good conversation is available. On top of that, you also get to enjoy a scrumptious traditional meal at the same time. If you do not want to leave the hotel, just spend time at the lobby bar and chat with your barman. You just might get some good travel tips straight from a local.

What could be better than spending a weekend with the girls shopping? And I’m not talking about your local mall; I’m talking about the mall to end all malls, The Mall of America.  This incredible place, which is celebrating its 20 year anniversary this year, has over 520 stores on four floors. It boasts 21 restaurants that include Tony Roma’s, Famous Dave’s BBQ, Ruby Tuesday and Buffalo Wild Wings, which gives you nearly unlimited cuisine choices.

This fabulous mall was actually built on the former site of Metropolitan Stadium. In fact, the home plate plaque is located in the Nickelodeon Universe, exactly where home plate was in the stadium. Another memento from the Mall’s former resident is a red painted chair, marking the longest home run, hit by Marmon Killebrew in 1967.

This is definitely not your mother’s shopping mall! Shopping aside, the Mall of America is home to several great attractions, including the Minnesota Sea Life Aquarium that offers the chance to on only view sharks, stingrays, turtles and many other beautiful sea creatures, but host special events as well.  Here you can plan a sleep over, participate in scuba diving and even hold a birthday party.  If you’re more of an adventurer, check out the Nickelodeon Universe indoor theme park where you can ride roller coasters, participate in a ropes course or play miniature golf course.   And if you are so inclined, you can even get married here, at the Chapel of Love on the 3rd floor.

So whether you and your girlfriends are gearing up for some serious shopping or are looking for a great place to have fun and relax, let Ingenious Travel put you on the road to the Mall of America.

What is your favorite store to shop with the girls?
