From the Travel Office: Holiday Shopping Escapes



New York
It’s always a delight to visit New York during the holiday season: to do some seasonal shopping; to try a new restaurant; to soak up the atmosphere of celebration. The familiar sights never lose their pleasure: the tree at Rockefeller Center; the skaters at Central Park; the lavishly decorated windows on Fifth and Madison avenues. And it’s never to early to book arrangements for this busy and festive time of year.
