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!

What People Are Saying About Rockefeller Center
I absolutely recommend to all my friends who are willing to visit empire state & the rest of the tour.
Absolutely amazing. I would just stress that one must buy express if one wants to visit. To put in persepctive: with express did whole tour and got amazing views in 50 mins. People with normal pass were quing fot 6 hours plus. Express allows you to completely skip cues in private lane saving so much essential time. Beyond this the experience and views are incredible.
Wonderful & extremely knowledgeable guide. Got to see lots of great places from all of our favorite holiday movies!
Our guide, Stan O'Connor, was excellent. Great tour, especially if you have a limited amount of time ti spend in the city.
Get to building early to avoid queuing and once up enjoy the whole panoramic views on offer.
