Bundle up for a Visit to NYC in January

Average temperature low and high: 39°- 26°
If you're looking to experience a true winter wonderland this season, New York is the place to visit this month. January temperatures are extremely cold in NYC, with highs only reaching the 30s during the day, and dropping to the mid to low 20s during mornings and nights; some very cold mornings can even drop to the mid to lower teens. Luckily, the city will host many indoor shows and events to keep you entertained and out of the cold if you want to avoid it. This is also a great time to visit if you wish to take advantage of affordable accommodations and flights while avoiding large tourist crowds.

Get A Luxurious Spa Treatment
Winter means dry skin and stress for many people, but fortunately, New York City has some of the best spas in the world.  Take a day to yourself and splurge on unique spa treatments, like a wine bath at Aire, a Geisha facial using nightingale droppings at Shizuka Day Spa, or leech therapy at Silesian Holistic Center.  While some may seem odd, you'll be amazed at how refreshed you feel afterward.
