    Take a bite from the Big Apple and savour the fun

    New York City is comprised of five boroughs, although at times the city feels like a million worlds rolled into one. As the largest U.S. city, New York buzzes with activity around the clock. Join crowds of travellers as they venture to the top of the Empire State Building, marvel at the bright lights of Times Square or take in the spectacle of a Broadway show. Even in the heart of a bustling metropolis, your New York vacation rental never places you far from the peace and quiet of a Central Park, or a tranquil space in a world-class museum.

    It's non-stop adventure in the city that never sleeps

    Love the great outdoors no matter the time of year? Winter in Central Park gives you the chance to practice your triple axel on an outdoor skating rink, while summer offers plenty of sunshine for picnics and boat rides on the lake. Summer also brings a myriad of festivals, concerts and the park's beloved Shakespeare in the Park performances. Enjoy a workout on the High Line, the city's famed elevated rail trail, or become a spectator as you take in a Yankees game in the Bronx. Boat ride tours through New York Harbor provide a unique perspective of the city.

    Bridges, buildings and Broadway – NYC has it all

    Set out from your New York vacation rental early to see all that the city has to offer. Soak up the views from the observation deck atop the Empire State Building, or shop until you drop in the enormous stores of Times Square. Culture vultures will salivate over top-notch Broadway shows, and the city's array of renowned museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Natural History. Enjoy a unique workout by climbing to the top of Statue of Liberty or walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. Old-fashioned fun awaits you on the roller coasters of Coney Island.

    I like New York in June…and throughout the year

    New York City offers very district seasons. Spring brings budding flowers, steady rain and daytime conditions that range from cool to warm. Things really heat up in the summer, however, when sunny days may feature high humidity and temperatures that exceed 31 degrees. New York vacation rentals fill up quickly during the summer so be sure to book early. Make sure you bundle up in the autumn, as there's usually a crisp, chill to the air. But that's nothing compared to the winters, which are usually dark, snowy and cold, with temperatures dipping somewhere around 4 degrees.

    It's a zoo out there – animals in an asphalt jungle

    While you might think it's hard to find nature in New York City, the Central Park Zoo is home to not just penguins and polar bears, but also features an aquarium and a free-flight area for birds. The park's lake is filled with scores of fish, turtles and waterfowl, while Manhattan's watery landscape includes trails along the East and Hudson Rivers. For the ultimate bird watching experience, the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge attracts thousands of land and shore birds during the migration season. For a more diverse setting, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden offers a mixture of woodlands, meadows and marshland.
