From the many places to cozy up in an igloo while having a bite to eat and holiday winter markets to twirling around on one of the city’s many ice skating rinks and hitting the bustling streets for date night, New York City in the wintertime is a dream come true–and this new study proves it.
According to a study conducted by the online casino and sportsbook operator JeffBet, new data has revealed the top ten cities in the U.S. to have the most magical winter experience, and, by no surprise to anyone whatsoever, NYC made it to the top!
JeffBet scoured social media data to determine the top ten most talked-about U.S., U.K., Canadian, and European cities in winter–the cities with the most desirable hashtags on TikTok which made the top ten includes #WinterInNewYork and #LondonChristmasMarkets.
The study states:
New York takes the silver medal. The “Big Apple” ranks second in the top ten best cities to visit in the winter, with 69 million hashtags on Instagram and TikTok. New Year’s Eve is the most popular hashtag relating to winter in New York; #NYENewYork has 6.4 million hashtags, and #NewYorkNYE has 1.3 million hashtags on the social media platform.
So while a visit to our friends over in London will apparently leave you with the best winter experience there is to have overall, New York was named the second best city in the world to have a magical winter experience, with more than 68 million seasonal hashtags on TikTok.
A spokesperson at JeffBet commented on the study saying, “With winter just around the corner, it’s almost time to start thinking about festive activities and celebrations carrying into the new year. This study highlights the best places for a winter experience for locals and visitors alike.”
