With the ‘Big Apple’ offering enough entertainment, shopping, food, sights and attractions to keep you occupied for weeks, it’s little surprise holidays to New York remain one of the most popular bucket list trips in the world. New York holidays are a hit with families, couples and friends, so whether you’re up for romantic strolls in Central Park or a fun-packed family getaway, you’ll be spoilt for choice. The mild temperature during Spring and Autumn (April-May and September-October) make these the perfect times to visit this dazzling city. Summers can reach a warm 30°C, but the humidity may ruin all the fun, while snow-covered winters add a festive touch to the city, particularly if you visit the spectacular Christmas markets in New York during December.
You’ll run out of pages if you try listing reasons for visiting New York! From the Empire State Building to the majestic Statue of Liberty, New York is teeming with must-see sights. Hit Broadway for a show, shop along the uber-stylish Fifth Avenue, spend an evening at the glittering Times Square, go for a cruise on the Hudson river, or relax in Central Park with the iconic Manhattan skyline as your backdrop. The city has loads of kid-friendly attractions too. The littles ones will love the dinosaurs at the American Museum of Natural History, or witness Macy’s fireworks extravaganza during 4th July celebrations. With a medley of sights, activities, culture and cuisine across five buzzing boroughs that constitute the city, it’s easy to see why New York is one of the most popular city breaks ever.
