“So Cool in the Winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

The big Christmas tree and the ice skating rink and the cool brisk wind against your cheeks, what an eperience. When we were standing there they also played a display of lights and scenes on the side of the building, it's just a really nice experience. We also went to the Lego store around the corner, overwhelming choice for my son LOL but they have a display of lego built that looks like Rockefeller Center how cool.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

After watching Home Alone 2 i had to go and see the tree. It is just like it is in the movie with the angels. We were there for thanksgiving so all the xmas lights are on and there is ice skating there. It is just magical.

Amazing with the lights and the people and the light and the people.... Make sure you tour the block as there are different scenes and lights off different streets. Also catch the visual show off the Saks wall 5th Ave

“The most amazing Christmas tree i have ever seen!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

What can I say? I've seen so many photos of this tree and seen it in so many films alike! It's amazing in the flesh and I was quite in ore of it I must say! The atmosphere was lovely and we got some great shots!

We didn't ice state as the que was far too long, but we did stay awhile and take things in! One of my favourite sights whilst visiting nyc :)

“Best around Christmas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Rockefeller center has TONS of shops and places to eat. But if you go around Christmas time when they have their tree lit, you will be amazed by the beauty! It's like a little Christmas town at night with a skating rink right below the tree, and large snowflakes and angels lining the streets! Also they have tiny shops throughout Bryant Park that's within Rockefeller Center where you can get food, hot cocoa, coffee or get a little Christmas shopping done!
