New York City: a holiday treat for the whole family

The Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall

‘Tis the season:  That time of the year to come to New York City to see 2010’s Christmas tree. The lights!  The children’s faces!  The decorated store windows on Fifth Avenue.  Park Avenue.  The ice skating rink at Rockefeller Center.  Saint Patrick’s Cathedral.  After visiting all of these sites, you have to treat yourself and your family to The Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall.

If you can’t afford a Broadway play for your whole family then you have to check out Radio City Music Hall.  See the Christmas Spectacular which has been performed for over 75 years by the brilliant Rockettes.  It’s a colorful fun show that children and adults will both enjoy. From the dazzling kick lines and sparkling fireworks to a flying Santa bringing with him a special 3-D surprise, it’s the perfect way to bring holiday cheer to your family.

Orchestra tickets are available for specific shows at special value times.   Orchestra tickets for as low as $50.  Call 866-858-0007 and use Code: DM50 or visit  Groups of 9 or more call 212-465-6080.  Radio City Music Hall’s Box Office is at 1260 6th Avenue between 50th and 51st Streets.
