Macy's Thanksgiving Parade 2022 - What to Expect

11/16/2022



All you need to know about The Macy's Parade in New York City



One of the most beloved NYC Parade is (almost) upon us –– CAN YOU BELIEVE IT THAT THANKSGIVING IS ONLY 8 DAYS AWAY??!!  We for sure cannot! Not sure if it's just us, or what, bu every year, we tell ourselves that this time we'll be ready ahead of time & everything will be planned (dinner too) with no need to rush on the 11th hour ... but as usual, even this year it feels like Thanksgiving just snuck up on us!

Although, we haven't yet shopped for our Thanksgiving Dinner, we for sure are EXTREMELY EXCITED that our favorite Parade is back next week. We put together some information you might find useful and you can always follow us on Instagram and Social Media for more up-to-dates info & breaking news.

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]

The SATC walking tour is fabulous! Our tour guide was amazing. Friendly, helpful, accommodating and so knowledgeable about the city. It was essentially 2 tours in 1. SATC and visits to historical places in the city. I give this tour 5 stars and definitely recommend. Grab your walking shoes and schedule one today!
