Holiday Shopping on a Budget in NYC

Oct. 10, 2019

The holidays are coming up, which means plenty of great food, quality time with loved ones, and seasonal festivities. Despite all these wonderful aspects of the holidays, it’s not easy for all of us to get in the holiday spirit when there is so much holiday shopping to do.


For those who are stressed about all the extra expenses that arise during the holidays, we have created a guideline for saving money on holiday shopping with a BestBus trip to NYC. 


Tips for saving money during the holidays in NYC


New York City is one of the best places to visit during the holidays. The city is covered in decorations, and people come from all over the world to visit the holiday markets speckled across the city. Not only can you enjoy a fun and festive visit to this spectacular city with affordable bus trips like our service from Union Station to NYC, but with the right knowledge, you can find great deals on holiday shopping. 


Unique gifts from local vendors


Most people think of New York City as a shopping mecca, but we often forget about the many local vendors selling unique, inexpensive goods across the city. NYC is a great hub for creative, small business owners and crafty hobbyists. This is especially celebrated during the holidays where local shopping events like the Grand Central Holiday Fair take over the city, offering plenty of unique and affordable goods. 


The holiday market at Columbus Circle


Right on the corner of New York’s beautiful Central Park, the Columbus Circle holiday market boasts rows and rows of unique goods from creatives all over the world. Get lost in the beautiful clothing, artwork, and holiday decor before cozying up at a picnic table with a hot chocolate or a delicious meal from one of the many food vendors featured in the extensive food section of this market.


Experience Bryant Park 


During the holidays, Bryant Park is transformed into a center for all of the holiday festivities you could imagine. Explore the many vendors selling unique, affordable items before hitting the skating rink and fueling up with some delicious snacks.
