Home to the Christmas Spectacular, we will go behind the scenes of the “Showplace of the Nation” on a guided tour. You will discover art deco masterpieces, learn the history of the iconic Great Stage and even meet a Rockette. For almost a century, the Rockettes have been American icons. They have appeared at Radio City Music Hall in hundreds of stage spectaculars, and have participated in many historic and memorable events—like joining the USO and traveling abroad to entertain the troops and support wartime effort, and performing at the inauguration of the 43rd president of the United States, George W. Bush, in 2001. Now sit back and enjoy the Christmas Spectacular, is a one-of-a-kind celebration that brings together family, friends, and loved ones. The Rockettes dazzle in brilliant dance numbers and Radio City is aglow with the joy of the season. Follow Santa on his sleigh ride, see ice skaters swirl across the stage, and catch a snowflake or two in this immersive theatrical experience like no other. No one says Merry Christmas quite like the Rockettes! Enjoy an included dinner this evening in Little Italy (B, D)

It is centered where Fulton Street meets the East River, and adjacent to the Financial District. It is comprised of old brick buildings, converted warehouses, Belgian-block streets and boat slips and is peppered with places to shop and eat.
