New York City
When to go to New York City
Peak Season: September to October; December; May to JuneIf you're visiting in the fall or spring expect great weather and high prices; rates spike again during the holiday season, as the city overflows with shoppers.
Off Season: January to February; July to AugustWinters, averaging 35 degrees, are cold, but if you don't mind bundling up, you'll be privy to discounted post-holiday rates on flights and hotels. Summers – hazy, hot, and humid – also see discounted hotel rates.
Sweet Spot: March to April; NovemberYou’ll cash in on good deals during these months, but gamble on the weather – spring can be rainy and, like fall, temperatures can be fickle: averaging in the upper 40s, but often jumping unpredictably up and down the thermometer. Just watch out for the Thanksgiving holiday when parade-goers to the city serve to spike hotel rates.
