My husband and I are planing a trip to NY in January and have read how very cold it will be. Coming from a rather warm climate where winters can get to as low as only 46 deg f / 8 deg c I am just a little concerned. Will any of the big tourist attractions be impossible to do over this period should it snow? We will be prepared with many layers but worry that it may be impossible to do Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building etc.
Also trying to budget, could anyone help with cheap meals and from where so that we can budget accordingly ie nearest burger outlet etc. Food is not a biggie on our trip so really not concerned about fancy expensive meals.
Plan to do a day trip to DC via bus as well. Is this recommended? What is the best budget way to do this. Do it ourselves or go the guided tour route?
Thanks for all the help and look forward to responses!
PS any other tips would be great thanks!
