New York: When to Book
We love NYC!
There are two main seasons when you want to book New York as early as possible: summer and Christmas. Accommodations, show and event tickets, restaurant reservations, and general public access to sites are all heavily booked during these times so the earlier you plan your trip and lock in bookings, the better. Any last minute decisions will be pricey and may not be available at all. There are other peak times during some convention periods and special holidays where certain areas of the city may be busier but do not effect general bookings overall. Allowing a month in advance is ample time for bookings during the rest of the year.
