When is the best time to travel?
We believe the best time to travel is during February Half Term. There are a few reasons for this:
Potential to be a winter wonderland
New York City is one of the most magical places in the world especially during the winter months. Although it may be a little chilly with highs in February reaching just 5°C, this also means that they often get some snow. With the lights in Times Square and the snow on the ground you really will feel like you’re in a winter wonderland.
Quieter time of the year
Low season in New York City is from January to early part of March. With February half term right in the middle of the low season this means that the city is usually quieter. Students will feel like they see more of the city when they don’t have to push through the crowds in this busy city.
More choice of Broadway shows
If you have a particular Broadway show you and your students want to see you have a better chance of securing one of your preferred choices. This is particularly important if you are a large group and you all want to see the same shows. We will always send you a list of shows that are available during your trip; you then send us your top 3 choices. The chance of getting your top choices is much higher during February than most other months.
All attractions are available
As it may be a little chilly, it is great to know that all of the cities attractions are still open. This gives you lots of opportunities to pop inside and warm up. Don’t forget you will also have your workshops with a tutor to fit between all of your excursions.
Best value for money
A trip to New York, means a flight and a hotel. According to TripAdvisor, flights and hotels in New York are the cheapest in the months of January and February. The most expensive months are July and August. So if you are looking for good value for money then book your next trip to New York for February half term.
