Top sights in New York City
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!
Rockefeller Center attraction opening hours differ slightly. 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. It's worth checking each attraction's individual website for further details.

What people are saying about Rockefeller Center
It was exactly what it said it was. Tickets for top of the rock. With so many scam sites out there I was skeptical about the authenticity of this site, it just seemed generic, but everything worked as said for top of the rock.
Amazing! Super fast entry but unavoidable queues inside. Definitely recommend grabbing your tickets once you arrive to the city. This will ensure you get the time slot you want for whichever day/time you choose.
Very good, you got to see everything that was on the list. Jen was very chatty and funny. Must do if you don't have much time and want to see a lot.
Amazing value! Easy to use! The best for me was buying it several months ahead of my trip and getting here to have our excursions already paid for.
Easily the best viewing gallery in New York. There are 3 levels and you get an excellent 360 view of all of NYC.
