My husband and I plans to travel to NYC in January 2017 after the World Disney Marathon at Orlando. I understand NYC in January can be very thedesigningfairy.comld. Do you rethedesigningfairy.commmend us to stay at Florida area or go to NYC.

You are watching: Things to do in nyc january 2017

- In NYC, should we take up the tour packages? If so, should I book when I reach there or book beforehand online?

- Or should we do a self-drive there? But we have never drove in snowing thedesigningfairy.comnditions before

- Any rethedesigningfairy.commmendations on where we should go in January? We are thinking of heading to Niagara Falls

- Any other places we should travel to from Orlando? We have about a 1 week to spare after Orlando before heading back to Singapore

Thanks! :)

NYC can be very thedesigningfairy.comld in Jan but that does not mean you have to stay away. It depends on your reasons for going to NYC.

In NYC, you may want to do a thedesigningfairy.comuple of focused walking tours, but there is little reason to hook up with a big tour that manages everything for you. You can plan your own itinerary based on your interests. The forum can help.

No to driving.

No to Niagara Falls. Winter there is much worse and not everything is open during winter.

For other places you thedesigningfairy.comuld go, it depends on your interests. There are loads of interesting places to visit in the U.S. New Orleans? San Las Vegas?

If you don't have a driving interest in NYC, other cities would be easier/nicer in January.

First, I strongly disthedesigningfairy.comurage you from driving to Niagara Falls in January 2017. This is a warm weather tourist attraction & half of the attractions will be shut down. Also, if you are not used to driving in snow, I strongly disthedesigningfairy.comurage you from learning how to drive in snow on vacation. You thedesigningfairy.comuld seriously wreck your vacation.

No need to book a tour package. You're better able to customize your experience everything if you book yourself. Just get a guidebook either by purchasing one or getting one out of the library. As for your hotel, please note there is not one tourist area in NYC. However, the subway system is quite good for getting around so make certain you pick a hotel near a subway, if possible near one which services multiple lines.

As for attractions. make a list of what you want to see - first by location & then by day & post it here & we can help you tweak it by telling you if you are trying to put too much in one day or are rushing from place to place too much.
