In 2018, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will take place on Thursday, November 22, 2018.
If you are in New York City or are planning to visit the city during the Thanksgiving then the best way to watch the Macy’s Parade is live on streets as it happens to get the real feel of those giant helium filled Balloons and decorative floats going past the streets of Manhattan.
If you do not wish to reach the viewing sports early in the morning at around 5 or 6 am to grab a good free viewing spot and if you have money to spent then you can watch the parade live from a hotel room from one of the many hotels which are located on the route of the Macy’s parade.

First let me describe the Route of the Macy’s Parade.
The 2018 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will begin at 77th Street & Central Park West and then march south on Central Park West.
At Columbus Circle, the Parade will then turn EAST onto Central Park South instead of heading down Broadway. When the Parade reaches 7th Avenue, it turns south at the corner of Central Park South and march to 42nd Street.
The Parade will then travel east along 42nd Street from 7th to 6th Avenues. At 6th (Avenue of the Americas), it veers south to 34th Street. At 34th Street it heads west to Macy’s Herald Square and will end at 34th Street and Seventh Avenue.
The total length of the Macy’s Parade Route is around 2.5-mile and it there are many good hotels on this route but you need to book rooms well in advance to get them at reasonable prices.
