NYC & Company, New York City’s destination marketing organization, encourages visitors to book a trip to New York City this winter, one of the most beautiful, intimate and now even more affordable times of the year. Visitors to New York City in January and February will be comforted with experiences from picturesque snowfalls to lovely hotel fireplaces (best accompanied with hot cocoa), as well as rare moments such as shorter lines at museums, easier-to-book restaurant reservations and other conveniences unique to the cold-weather months. Winter 2017 will also be the most affordable value period ever for travelers, with deals on dining, attractions and live theater, and hotels offering their lowest room rates of the year.
“Winter is one of the most attractive and value-oriented times of the year to visit New York City, with unique and magical experiences across all five boroughs,” said Fred Dixon, president and CEO of NYC & Company. “New shopping destinations, iconic attractions, world-class dining and live theater promise to energize visitors and locals alike.”
Each of the City’s five boroughs is a unique destination in itself, where free and affordable hidden gems and one-of-a-kind winter experiences await. A sampling of itineraries that feature indoor and outdoor activities by borough—all easily accessible by the City’s affordable 24-hour subway system—follows, with additional events and activities listed in NYC & Company’s new Winter Guide.
