Perhaps the city’s most iconic ice skating venue, the Rockefeller Center rink offers plenty of ice for skating under the glow of the legendary Christmas tree and bronze statue of Prometheus. The rink first opened on Christmas Day in 1936 and was meant to be a temporary installment, but it remains one of the city’s most popular places to lace up. With opportunities to skate with Santa, decked-out shops nearby, the Rockettes performing just down the street, and a world-famous tree with twinkling rainbow lights, this is a one-stop shop with everything you need to channel your holiday spirit.
Price: Tickets (which include a skate rental) range from $20-$54 depending on date and time.
Hours: Daily from 7 am to midnight
