Make Your Holiday to New York an Unforgettable Experience
Any time is the best time to visit New York! New York enjoys incredibly hot summers; cold snowy winters and cinematic autumns where you can see golden leaves blow past classic brownstone stoops. Each month brings its own special quality to the city.
If you want to visit New York during the start of the year, January and February will be cold and there may be some snow. You can celebrate the Chinese New Year in February, as there are vibrant parades during the day and extraordinary fireworks at night.
When visiting between March and May, you can experience the city during spring and enjoy the start of warmer, more pleasant weather. You won’t be guaranteed sunshine, but the city and Central Park will be more accessible. If you’re in New York in March, you can celebrate St. Patricks Day all across the city.
If you are looking for sun in the city, head to New York between June and August. This is by far the hottest and most popular time to visit, but make sure you get a room with air conditioning as it can get very humid. If you are in New York at the start of July, you can celebrate the Fourth of July and see some amazing fireworks.
If you want to get a bit of New York City romance, visit in autumn. This is a great time to take a horse and cart ride through Central Park. In November you can see the famous Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and its huge inflatable characters.
Christmas in New York: A Shopping Wonderland
Then there is of course Christmas in December. Christmas is an amazing time to visit New York, for the atmosphere, decorations and shopping. If you are in New York for Christmas, stay for New Years Eve where you can bring in the New Year in style.
No matter what time you decide to visit, New York is packed full of places to go and things to do. Central Park is fantastic all year round. The 843 acres of land are filled with nature, views, and activities. You can wander through the grounds, see the Conservatory Garden, have a paddle in the lake, go to the zoo, or even cross the infamous Bow Bridge.
Shopping in New York needs to be experienced at least once in a lifetime. You could either go during fashion week, or keep it indie and visit some of the eclectic boutiques in SoHo. You can end the day with a Broadway show. There are some fantastic musicals and plays on where you can see Hollywood stars flexing their acting muscles on the stage. There are lots of free activities too take advantage of too, such as being an audience member during the taping of a live television show.
There are hotels to suit every taste and budget in New York, from luxury hotels with spas, long-stay hotels, to hostels. For more information about the hotels available from Travelbag, click here.

An iconic city with an awe-inspiring skyline, a plethora of landmarks and the world famous Broadway, New York City is a popular destination complete with character and buzz. The powerful city is the largest in the United States of America and has an impact on much of the world. The urban jungle is so impressive that people flock there whether it is the cold winter months or in the heat of summer. But, when descending on the city, what do you need to pack?
Start with a couple of pairs of comfortable shoes. Keep in mind the weather when you are going to see if you need boots or whether trainers are appropriate. Jeans should be added, and if it is spring through autumn then look to take light layers to add or remove over the course of a day.
While you don’t need to be overly smart, keep casual garments to a minimum as they aren’t particularly versatile; a couple of pairs of shorts and t-shirts is plenty. In the evening, a shirt, trousers and jacket are more than enough for most restaurants and remember to pack something smart if you are heading to Broadway in the evening.
In the winter, be sure to carry things like hat, gloves, scarf, warm coat and an umbrella (the latter whatever the season) and as the seasons change you can tone down as the weather improves before dropping again in late October.
- Capital-Washington DC is the capital of the USA while Albany is the state capital of New York.
- Currency-American dollar
- Time Zone-GMT -5 hours
Weather in New York
The Big Apple sees a significant fluctuation between temperatures over the course of a year. January and February kick it off with near freezing conditions; it will be cold and wet, with highs of 1 or 2ºC and dropping as low as -5ºC before wind chill. This can be cheapest time to travel.
It begins to warm up in March when you can see highs of 6ºC and that continues into April (which can sometimes enjoy a ‘heatwave’). The spring of May and June is probably the ideal time to visit New York City before it gets hot and humid in July and August. This lasts until the temperature drops in October ahead of the festive period.
