3. Head to Rockefeller Plaza
The most festive location in New York at Christmastime is undoubtedly Rockefeller Center. There you will find the iconic Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, an enormous, magnificent tree complete with colorful lights. Movie fans may recognize the tree from “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York!”
Besides the famous tree, you will find numerous attractions and shops at Rockefeller Center, making it a perfect place to spend a merry time with your friends or family.
Rockefeller Center is also home to New York’s most famous skating rinks- your kids are sure to love skating outdoors right next to the tree. You can also go up to the Rockefeller Center Observation Deck for a spectacular view of the city lights!
