If you ask ten people when it’s the best time to visit New York, you’ll likely receive a variety of answers. Some will tell you, due to the weather in NYC, it’s best to arrive April through May, or August through September.
However, if you’re not sensitive to the heat of the summer, or the chill of a cold snowy winter, many people will tell you — it’s always a great time to visit New York City, regardless of the season.
Why? Because each season brings a unique flair to our City, offering visitors special adventures where they can make wonderful memories. So, take into consideration your personal weather sensitivities, then check out our short list of what makes New York City an amazing place to visit, from season to season.
Spring in New York City
Not only does Spring bring the perfect weather to NYC, but it’s also the start of baseball season. Go Yankees!
If you’re not into sports, you can check out Central Park when everything’s at its spectacular best — especially the delicate pink grace of the Cherry Blossoms. Then, you can top it all off by putting down a checkered blanket and enjoying an old fashioned picnic in our world-renowned park.
Or how about sitting on the patio, of one of our many city bistros, and enjoying the beautiful weather while you leisurely take in a fresh hand-tossed pizza and people watch — New York style.
Summer in New York City
During the summer in New York City, you can enjoy the US Tennis Open, or Shakespeare in the Park, and an array of incredible, free, outdoor concerts.
Or how about renting a rowboat and taking a romantic ride for two on the scenic lake at Central Park? If you don’t mind the warm weather, summer in New York City might just be the perfect time for your next visit.
Autumn in New York City
The weather is amazing and so are the tourist opportunities. Take a stroll through Central Park and enjoy the changing season and spectacular color of the crisp falling leaves.
And if you’re here at Thanksgiving, you can watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade — the one you’ve enjoyed for years from your living room television, except now you can see it up front and personal. Hint: bring a sweater and your camera.
Winter in New York City
There’s nothing like the winter holidays in New York City. You’ll be awe-struck by seeing Central Park blanketed in a pristine covering of fresh snow. Then, you can grab a cup of hot cocoa, with extra marshmallows, rent a pair of ice skates, and go for a picture perfect twirl at Rockefeller Center.
After indulging in holiday pastries — baked fresh throughout the City — you can check out the creative, and world famous, Christmas window displays on 5th Avenue, then take in a captivating production of the Nutcracker by the New York City Ballet
If you’re still around for New Year’s Eve, how about watching the iconic ball drop at Times Square, while the celebratory confetti cascades around you?
The bottom line is, there’s everything to love about New York City in the winter.
