Wandering around Rockefeller Plaza

Hello New York! For my college-age daughter’s spring break, we decided to take a trip to New York. In all the times I have gone to New York for fashion week, I never did any of the tourist check boxes! Isn’t that crazy?! So, despite being to the big apple numerous times, this was my first time exploring the city and seeing all of the iconic landmarks.

On day one, we went to Rockefeller Plaza. My daughter is a huge video game fan, so the Nintendo Store was huge on her list of places to visit. So, after enjoying a yummy lunch at Yama Ramen (I will post about restaurants next week), we went straight to the Nintendo store.

I didn’t realize there was a mini museum inside the store! There were tons of vintage Nintendo game consoles including ones I remember from high school and college. It was fun to see the evolution of gaming amongst the modern store selling the latest and greatest in Nintendo products.

Pictured above, is just one of the many vintage products on display inside the Nintendo store at Rockefeller Plaza. We enjoyed exploring the store and my daughter did end up buying a few items on her wish list.

After the Nintendo store, we walked around the plaza and enjoyed seeing the ice skating rink in its final days of winter. I did take a few pictures, but there were a lot of people in them, and I don’t think they want to be on my blog, so I left those photos out. Sorry!

Near the skating rink is an iconic Kate Spade store. Kate Spade is known for her kitschy designs and New York themed accessories. Aren’t these Taxi flats adorable?

There were several Taxi and New York themed items in store at Kate Spade. Her collection is always fun and lighthearted. Love!

After exploring the ice skating rink and Kate Spade, we wandered over to Saint Patrick’s Cathedral. It is such a beautiful church; my photos are terrible! I wish I had my camera instead of an iPhone to capture its beauty. You will just have to believe me that the building is magical!

Of course, when you have an engineering student for a daughter, no trip is complete without a quick visit to the Lego store. Say “hi” to Mario and Luigi!

We got lucky and enjoyed mild weather that day as we wandered around Rockefeller Plaza. It was fun to be a tourist and enjoy an iconic landmark in New York City. Stay tuned for more coverage of my recent trip to the big apple!

Thanks for stopping by!
