From the vibrant, bright lights and grand skyscrapers, to the glam rooftop lounges and trendy AF hole-in-the-wall restaurants, The City That Never Sleeps is truly a place where dreams are made. Once the holiday season rolls around, New York City transforms into the winter wonderland straight out of a fairy tale. And of course, you cannot forget to hit up the most essential Christmas icon in the city: the Rockefeller Center christmas tree. If you’re attending the tree lighting on Wednesday, Nov. 29, or you’re planning on seeing the exquisite site another time during the season, you’ll need some Instagram captions for Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree pics that truly encapsulate all the magical feels.

There’s something extra dreamy in the air as apartments and lampposts are decked in the most festive decor, and stores on every corner are adorned with glitter and gold. The Saks Fifth Avenue holiday window displays never fail to make our jaws drop, and grabbing hot chocolate with the girl crew to hit up Wollman Rink in Central Park is a staple of the season. Oh, and if spiked eggnog is your jam (duh), a pit stop at the most festive restaurant in the whole city, Rolf's, is seriously necessary.

Break out your boujee jackets, ladies, because ’tis the season for prime photo shoots with the beautiful holiday decor. I mean, if you didn't snap a pic for the 'Gram, did it really even happen?
