Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, for the first time or the fortieth, New York City never fails to excite visitors with its heart-pounding mix of museums, theaters, restaurants, shopping and must-see attractions. Dubbed “The City That Never Sleeps,” it’s a world stage of finance, politics, art and media – entertaining and engaging all in a melting pot of culture, creativity and tenacity.
Few symbols of the holiday season can compare to the magnificent tree at Rockefeller Center. When it's lit on December 3, it marks the official beginning of Big Apple holiday revelry. The fun kicks off with live performances from 7:00 to 9:00 pm on the plaza. Sure, you'll be battling a crowd that numbers in the tens of thousands (locals and a guests of New York City hotels) to see the spectacle but, trust us, the memories are worth it. And here's something you might not know. After the iconic tree comes down, it's milled, treated and made into lumber that's used for Habitat for Humanity home building. Last year's tree is now the exterior walls of a home in Bridgeport, CT. Talk about being a symbol of hope and renewal!
