Things to Do in NYC This Season

The Best New York City Activities

There are many benefits to traveling to New York City, but the greatest part is the magnitude of nearby attractions. When you stay at Hotel Wales, you're placed in the cultural center of the world with adventure found on every corner. Whether you’re in town for a whole week or just a quick getaway, your itinerary is going to fill up quickly.

Plan your visit to NYC using our top picks for the best things to do in the fall below.


Sports fans visiting the city in the fall are in luck: fall marks the beginning of the season for many of New York's professional sports teams. The New York Knicks, the New York Rangers, and the New York Giants all kick off their seasons in the fall. As the temperatures start to drop, the Knicks' and the Rangers' home arena, Madison Square Garden, offers an iconic indoor venue for an afternoon or evening of excitement. New Jersey Devil's fans can catch a home game at their Newark Hockey Arena, Prudential Center as well. And fans of the Islanders and Nets can support from Barclay's Stadium in Brooklyn all season. 

Art & Museums

Within a short range of our Upper East Side hotel are some of the world’s most renowned museums. Take in the crisp fall atmosphere during a stroll around Central Park as you walk between iconic Manhattan museums like The Met, Met Breuer, the Guggenheim, or the American Museum of Natural History. Discover more nearby museums using our museum guide.

Farmers Markets

Nothing says fall quite like a trip to one of the city’s many farmers markers. Featuring delectable fall treats like hot apple cider, pumpkin flavored baked goods, and more, New York City boasts some of the best markets in the country. The Union Square Greenmarket, the 79th Street Greenmarket, and Grand Army Plaza are some of our favorites.

Bike Tours

Explore the city in a new way on a bike tour around some of New York’s top attractions. Marvel at the colorful landscape of Central Park as the leaves change color or bike along the Hudson River for spectacular views of Manhattan.
