Rockefeller Center, New York

10 of 20

Height: 74 feet

When it comes to iconic status,
Rockefeller Center’s Christmas tree—usually a Norway spruce—has no rival. (Well,
except for the White House’s smaller National Christmas Tree, which has more
glitz than girth.) Its size is in full accordance with its fame. Chosen trees
must be at least 65 feet tall and 35 feet wide. Though recent years have seen
100-footers, this year’s unofficial national tree is “just” 74 feet tall.
Still, it’s one of the country’s most cherished symbols of the season. Gawk in
person at the 78th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, held a few days
after Thanksgiving.
