Head to NYC for Memorial Day as the City Starts to Open Back Up

Average temperature low to high: 54°-72°F
May means Memorial Day celebrations, and what better place to celebrate than in one of America's favorite cities? COVID restrictions will significantly ease on May 19, but reservations and ticket purchases for events are still highly recommended. Spring is the perfect time to explore New York by bicycle or venture around on-foot. The month's pleasant weather also welcomes outdoor venues like rooftop bars, which means sundecks, views, pools, and day drinking.
