It’s the most wonderful time of year where the hot chocolate warms the bodies covered in hats, mittens, and puffy jackets, the Rockettes are kicking their legs up while the blistering snow falls, and Rockefeller Center brings in the most gigantic, beautifully decorated tree that lights up the whole city to enjoy the holidays. The official tree lighting ceremony was held on Wednesday, December 2 and it will stay lit until January 7th. It’s located on 50th Street and 5th Avenue so get there soon to experience the magic of Christmas!
Along with the tree, all around Rockefeller Plaza, between West 48th and 51st Street and Fifth and Sixth Avenue, there is a bunch of Christmas cheer. Over-sized Christmas lights, ornaments, and even Santa’s reindeer are lining the streets around Rockefeller Plaza. This is the best area in the city to get into the holiday spirit! After visiting the tree, grab your skates to ice skate around the rink at Rockefeller Center or pull out your best tutu, pair of heels, and throw a red bow in your hair to go watch The Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall located right near all of the holiday festivities at Rockefeller Center. Happy Holidays!
