Welcome to the show notes for the eighth episode of the Just Go Places Podcast. Episode Eight is a look at all the cool family-friendly activities there are in the Rockefeller Center area of Manhattan.
Rockefeller Center is located in quite a compact area but contains many things to do – entertainment, culture, art, shops and food. In winter, of course, it’s got the famous Christmas Tree which makes the whole area magical. Any time of the year, Rockefeller Center is great fun to visit.

As Mentioned in the Podcast
The official website for Rockefeller Center is very informative.
The Radio City Music Hall website allows you to buy tickets to shows as well as arrange for tours of the building.
By the way, the Top of the Rock admission is included in the New York CityPass. You have to choose between the Top of the Rock or the Guggenheim Museum. If you want to do the Guggenheim Museum, you still get the Manhattan skyline view from the Empire State Building.
FDNY Fire Zone makes it fun to learn about fire safety.
Sadly Kenneth from 30 Rock won’t give you a tour but I’m sure the NBC Studios tour will be fun nonetheless.
After all this sightseeing, you deserve a treat from Magnolia Bakery.
For a swanky dinner with a view to die for, it’s got to be the Rainbow Room.
After all that overindulgence, take a moment for quiet reflection at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
Saks Fifth Avenue has gorgeous store windows that reflect the beautiful items for sale inside.
American Girl Place shows that Disney isn’t the only place where dreams can come true.
