Tourist attractions near New York vacation homes

New York is famous for its many museums and spending some time soaking up the culture is a must. Art lovers can pop into the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a staple since 1880, or the Guggenheim, with impressionist and contemporary pieces in an impressive cylindrical building. Kids will love walking around the American Museum of Natural History, where you can see giant T-rex fossils along with tons of interactive exhibits and 3D films. If your New York vacation rental is in Manhattan, you'll be close to several of these attractions, but the other boroughs have some impressive ones, too, like the Brooklyn Museum for art and the New York Hall of Science in Queens.

Best time to travel to New York vacation rentals

New York experiences all 4 seasons, with summers that can get hot and sticky, and freezing winters that blanket the city in snow. Spring and fall are among the best times to visit, when pleasant daytime temperatures are perfect for exploring monuments and museums and evenings sometimes call for boots and sweaters on the way to dinner and a night at the theater. These 2 seasons beautify the city's parks, with blooming flowers in spring and changing leaves in fall. No matter which season you choose to visit in, you'll want to book your New York vacation rental early, as the city is always a popular destination.
