There is nothing quite like the fall season in NYC. The weather is neither too hot nor too cold, making it the perfect time to check out many of the city’s seasonal events. Most tourists visit during the summer and winter, making fall a great time to see the city.
The diversity of the activity and events throughout the city mean everyone can find something they will enjoy. For example, from mid-September to mid-October, locals and tourists alike will be attending Oktoberfest. The experience includes the chance to sample numerous beers and enjoy local NYC cuisine. No matter which borough one is in, they will find Oktoberfest celebrations nearby.
