Came here with our teens to check out the Lego store and did the Top of the Rock observation deck. Rockefeller Center has so much history, it is a must see. Great place to people watch, too.

If you have a city pass no need to make reservations for the Rockefeller center tour. Just show up. We did. Great tour. Lots of beautiful art. Hope you enjoy the tour as much as we did.
