With winter just around the corner, most of us are dreaming about snuggling with a warm cup of tea and a nice book in bed. A select few, however, are already planning their next sightseeing tour. In NYC, the temperatures in winter months can get as low as 0 °F (around -18 °C) and a day outside can be a nightmare if you’re not prepared in advance.
Don’t let the cold weather ruin your NYC sightseeing tour! The easiest way to see the city and keep warm is by opting for a guided NYC bus tour, such as the ones provided by USA Guided Tours NY that offers bus tours with climate controlled buses. This will make the big freeze of NYC feel… well, like a breeze, and will offer you the one-of-a-kind opportunity to enjoy snowy NYC in comfort and with style.
Another good sightseeing practice, when it comes to winter tours, is to pack in layers. Don’t go for your heaviest sweater, but instead pack a few lighter pieces – a shirt, a thin blouse and maybe a cardigan. Also, aim for wool instead of synthetic materials, as wool is known to be the best material to regulate your temperature during the winter. Good wool socks, hats and gloves are essential, especially if you plan on walking a lot or handling any maps or smartphones.
Seasoned winter travelers also recognize the value of the hand-warming packs. You can find these in almost any store – they use various chemicals to create continuous heat that can last up to several hours and can be life-savers during your NYC winter tour!
