Visiting New York in June is a must for those who like a taste of everything. The weather isn’t too warm and although the city is bustling, it’s not yet unpleasantly full with the summer rush of tourists.
Average highs and lows of 79?F (26?C) and 64?F (18?C) still means the occasional sweater and umbrella use is necessary, but with outdoor season starting in New York, the colder days are few and far between.
The numerous outdoor music and film festivals which include the Bryant Park Film Festival, Jazz Festival and Shakespeare in the Park should give travellers a great taste of New York’s cultural scene. Most of these festivals are also free. It is advisable to pack a picnic basket and a blanket to make the festivals just that much more comfortable.
June also welcomes the Restaurant Week back, where New York’s top eateries offer 5 star meals at discount prices. There is also the Annual Lesbian and Gay Pride Week, Puerto Rican Day Parade and Mermaid Parade to look out for – entertainment in true cosmopolitan New York style. June in New York is definitely a time for the outdoors and cultural experiences.
