Fall is one of the best times of year to enjoy New York City. The city is filled with Oktoberfests, beautiful foliage, and amazing food this time of year. Many of these things are not around during the other seasons, so be sure to get to city before the cold weather comes.
 
When planning a weekend trip to the city, here are some things you will not want to miss.
 
Central Park Foliage
There is actually some pretty amazing foliage throughout New York City, but nothing compares to the views of Central Park in October. Walking through the park is a refreshing way to enjoy New York.
 
Pumpkin Spice Latte
It will be a lot harder to find a pumpkin spice latte once the season is over so be sure to have as many as possible! Here’s some advice: avoid Starbucks. The best lattes in New York are in smaller, lesser-known cafes.
 
Cider Week
October 24 will be the first day of Cider Week in New York City. Apple Cider is making a big comeback in recent years, and anyone who is a fan of cider shouldn’t miss out on this celebration of the drink.
 
Greenwich Village Halloween Parade
Fall is not complete without mentioning Halloween. The parade in Greenwich Village begins on Halloween at 7 p.m. This is your chance to check out some of the craziest costumes you will see this year, or put on your own and join the crowd.
 
Blackout NYC
Considered one of the scariest haunted houses in the world, Blackout is definitely not intended for the timid. Sound too intense? There are plenty of other haunted houses in the city that are for you. But for those looking for a real scare, Blackout is the place to go.
 
Fall does not last long, so don’t put off planning your weekend trip to the city. Get out there today and enjoy the weather while it’s still here.
