New York holidays

Take in the grandeur of Niagara Falls, experience the thrill of whitewater rafting in the Adirondacks, sample a delightful vintage at any number of wineries in Finger Lakes, or relive your youth at Rochester's Strong Museum.

When to go to New York
In the city, summers are scorching affairs as New Yorkers flee to the sunny, but more temperate, disposition of upstate New York. In the winter, while ski resorts open up throughout the region, both New York City and the state as a whole plummet in temperature. The best times to go, then, are spring and autumn.
