When Should You Visit New York City?

New York City Calendar

Not sure when the best time is to visit New York City? New York City is a great destination year round, but each season has its own perks (and disadvantages).

Winter is great for visitors who want to experience the wonders of the holiday season in New York City and don't mind the cold weather. Spring is a good choice if you want to enjoy New York City outdoors without the heat of summer, but are willing to pack an umbrella. Summer is great if you want to take advantage of free events in New York City, despite the heat. Fall is my favorite time of year in New York City, but deals can be hard to find.
