Always seen pictures and movies showing the tree at Rockefeller Center and wanted to see it for myself. It was just as beautiful in person. There are many view points to take photos but there are lots of other people trying to take photos too so you'll get a lot of heads in your photo. There was a special sectioned off area to take photos, however, you had to pay…we did not.

Got to check out the skating rink below too but there was a line up so we passed.

Although it was packed, but this didn't take anything away from the beauty of this building. Unfortunately, I didn't do top of the rock but it's definitely on my to do list when next I visit.

We visited a couple days after Christmas and the plaza was so full you could hard move or get a descent look at the Christmas Tree. I have been there in the summer while still busy it wasn't nearly this crowded.

Please be sure to visit the Christmas tree and ice rink! Even if it's just for a few minutes. It's beautiful and really makes the holidays special. The ice rink is gorgeous and there are lots of decorations on the grounds. There are small shops and restaurants downstairs and one can watch the ice skaters through the windows if they want to keep warm!

If you're in New York, especially for the first time, you have to make a quick stop at Rockefeller Center. The open-air plaza, ice-skating rink (if it's open!), and shopping/dining offerings are iconic New York. (Little people will appreciate the Lego store!) It's free and it's quick, though it can be crowded! Come snap a few pics. If the rink is open, you can take a turn around, or you can go to the rink viewing area in the shopping dining complex below and rest your feet a little!
