The Rockefeller Center is Manhattan in an Art Deco nutshell, whether it's shopping, fine dining, or entertainment that you're after. "The Rock" is at its festive best around Christmas, however, so here are a few tips to make the most of your yuletide visit!
The initial turning on of the lights is part of a huge ceremony that takes place on the first Wednesday after Thanksgiving. Arrive very early if you want a decent view!
Of course, more of New York is lit up for Christmas than just the Rockefeller Center. Find one of the festive city's best panoramas from the Top of the Rock observation deck!
With only 150 skaters at a time, the Rink at the Rockefeller is more intimate than its spectacular urban backdrop might suggest! It's open annually from October to April.
Take a guided tour of the renowned 30s music hall and then, if you liked that, top it off with a bombastic cabaret show led by their resident dance troupe, The Rockettes!
The Rockefeller spectacles involve a lot of standing around! Even if you think you've got the temperatures sussed, bring an extra layer just in case!

Although the Top of the Rock observation deck is open daily from 8:00AM to midnight (last elevator to the top departs at 11:00PM), many of the others operate at regular office hours or adapt to accommodate events.

What People Are Saying About Rockefeller Center
Most accommodating franchise. The staff very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.
Great 5 hour highlight of NY. Jeff was fun and knowledgeable - and his recommendations for places to eat were great!
Start time was too early. Didn't have time for coffee or breakfast, then guide was 30 minutes late. It was a walking tour, however guide had leg in cast from knee down. Wasn't given but 1 bathroom break, or anytime to get water or coffee. Couldn't hear her. Had no microphone like other guides. Felt rused. Though tour was at nbc, but was only there for a short time.
Busses were good, but some of the headphones/audio didn't work. Guides fun and informative.
Best way to see the big apple. Traffic is crazy in the city so walking is better with use of the subway.
