New York with a Baby or Toddler

The best times to visit with a baby or toddler are springtime and autumn.

Summers in New York can be cripplingly hot and humid and the city’s heat could cause some serious discomfort for younger travellers. If you have to travel to the city during the summer months make sure to take precautions to protect against sunburn, dehydration and heat exhaustion. Winter can be a great time for kids, especially coming up to Christmas when there are lots of fantastic activities including ice skating in central park and Rockefeller Centre. Be aware that it can get very cold at this time of year however and you will need to ensure that your little one is well wrapped up.
