The holidays can become more expensive than you'd like, so here's a list of free things to do this holiday season. All are wonderful for getting into the holiday spirit without spending a penny. Choose from holiday flower shows, parades, classic entertainment, festivals, or ice skating.
- Macy's Santaland: A Day in the Life of an Elf. Visit during the week to avoid the weekend crowds, and deny all knowledge of the adjacent toy shop if you are watching the pennies.
- Holidazzle Parade. New floats added this year, and the weather is mild enough to bundle up and watch without getting frostbite.
- Como Zoo's annual Holiday Flower Show. Because it smells gorgeous, and it's warm inside the Conservatory, and is the absolute opposite to a grey winter's day.
