Hi, I have been to NYC before with my husband but this was 17 years ago. It was March when we went, I remember it well. I recall the weather being cold but nothing a jacket could not handle.
This time we will be taking our 2 boys with us aged 11 & 13. Due to school exams I cannot take them out of school for a whole week so need to go during a school holiday. April, May, July, August and October school holidays are way over my budget so it has come down to February half term.
We will be flying with British Airways from LHW flying into JFK. Staying 6 nights at the Hilton Fashion District. Price quoted is £2297 for the flights and hotel.
I have shopped around and I believe this is the best price.
I know the weather will be cold that time of year but it either then or not at all. I have compared a weeks holiday in May to somewhere like Majorca and that is coming out at £3k so £2300 for New York surely is a no-brainer.
Do you think this is a decent price for going at a cheaper time?
Do you think my kids will still enjoy it despite the weather being cold?
Another question, I am thinking of just getting a cab to and from the airport, I believe this will be around $70 each way including tax, tolls, tip etc, I thought it would be a good way to see NYC on the way into Manhattan. I have also thought about the Airtrain etc due to costs but thought it may be more hassle with 2 children, thoughts on this please?
Thanks so much. This is my 1st post on this forum.
For the last 4 years we have always gone to Florida for 2 weeks but due to school and prices this is not an option so to get my fix of America I thought New York would be good.
