The Basics

The Macy’s®department store on 34th St opened in 1902. It is now known not only as a shopping destination but also as the host of the annual Thanksgiving Day Parade and the setting of the much-loved movieMiracle on 34th Street. The store offers shoppers 10 ½ levels of fashion, beauty, homewares, and more, plus a variety of restaurants. During the holidays, the store’s elaborate window displays attract thousands of visitors.

Movie buffs can learn about the store’s film legacy on a movie-themed tour of the city, while visitors interested in architecture can take a tour of the historic building. During the holiday season, join a themed walking tour to see the store’s windows—and the city—lit up with Christmas lights. Alternatively, stop by the store on a hop-on hop-off bus tour to enjoy plenty of time for shopping.
