Summer is over, and Fall is officially here for most of us! This means shorter days, longer nights, and sadly for those who love the heat, the temperature is declining. Of course we’re all well aware that seasonal change has an impact on our day-to-day lifestyles, but luckily, out of all the seasons, Fall is the most inspiring time of the year! Take the time to enjoy the beauty of Autumn’s flashes of gold, red, yellow and orange colors that surround you. This is the final splash of color before the winter dresses the nature in white, so let’s make the best of it by filling life full of adventures and discoveries in New York City. Here are some of the best activities to do in New York City that will boost your spirit this Fall!
Explore New York City with a biking tour! Check out the most spectacular views of the river and the city skyline along the Hudson River Park. There are also Bicycle clubs that you can join and meet new people while you are exercising and toning your legs and body!
