Don’t be afraid to visit New York City in the winter.
In fact, I recommend it! If you follow me on social media, you know that I just got back from spending five days in the city. And honestly, it was one of my best trips. Since it’s the low season for tourism you can more easily get into your favorite restaurants, snag same-day Broadway show tickets (for $40!), walk the art-filled Highline without bumping into anyone and experience more of the city than you might otherwise. Less crowds make a big difference!
Another incentive for visiting in the winter is the deals. We scored two-for-one airline tickets which made each round-trip, direct flight from our West Coast departure city under $200! We were also able to find a gorgeous apartment for less than $100 per night. For contrast, similar accommodations would be three to four times that in any other season.
If you are going to New York City in the winter, just be sure to pack for the cooler temperatures and you’ll be able to take in as much of the city (if not more!) as any other season. While daytime temperatures can be below freezing, here are some strategies for staying warm.
If you are going to New York City for the first time, or for the first time in a long time, it can be especially helpful to talk with an NYC expert. I will help you navigate the logistics of timing, budget, and travel party dynamics while incorporating your unique needs and interests to create a fully customized experience. This will save you time, reduce your stress and maximize your time in New York City!
