The New York City Holiday trip departs Monday, Dec. 7 for five days and includes five meals. Participants will get to experience “the Big Apple” alive with the holiday spirit on the tour. From Rockefeller Center to Greenwich Village, New York City shines even brighter during the holiday season.

Attractions include:
