There are several worthwhile winter activities in New York City, and a skate around the famousice rink at Rockefeller Center is definitely one that should top your list. The rink, which sits at the bottom of the sunken plaza at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, is a great place for both seasoned skaters and newbies to show off their skills. If you want to skate bright and early, you can make First Skate of the Day reservations—which affords you the opportunity to be the first on the ice for the daily 7 a.m. morning skate. VIP skating reservations are also available, allowing you to bypass the lines and enjoy complimentary hot cocoa and the assistance of a skate concierge. For more information, click here.
