Every year, the Norway Spruce beckons revelers from near and far to bask underneath its 30,000 twinkling lights and a dazzling Swarovski crystal star. This year’s pick hails from Pennsylvania and will come to life at the tree lighting ceremony on November 29th. Be sure to return throughout the holiday season for those festive selfies.
A visit to Rockefeller Center to see the Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony is one of NYC’s holiday traditions, but there are so many other fun things to do in the winter with kids once you’re there. Spend the day ice skating under the twinkling tree, shopping for presents and taking in the breathtaking sights from high above the crowds.
