There are two major airports, John F. Kennedy International (JFK) and LaGuardia, that service travelers flying into New York City. When you use Orbitz.com to book your flights to New York, you will be able to choose from almost every major domestic and international air passenger carrier. LaGuardia Airport is roughly nine miles east of Manhattan, while JFK is almost 20 miles to the southeast. If you can't find the flight that you want, you can also fly into Newark International Airport, roughly 19 miles northeast of Manhattan.
New York has plenty of public transportation, so getting around should be fairly easy. If you fly into LaGuardia, you will have to take a taxi, bus, or shared van for at least a portion of the trip, because there is no rail or subway service from the airport. Expect a cab ride from LaGuardia to Manhattan to cost anywhere from $20 to $40. Although JFK is further from the city, you can hop on the AirTrain, which will take you to the subway or the Long Island Railroad. If you choose to take a cab from JFK into Manhattan, expect to pay $45 or more for the ride. You will also be responsible for any tolls that are incurred during the trip. If you use Orbitz.com to book your hotel, you may be able to find one that offers free shuttle service to and from the airport.
New York tends to be cold in the winter, wet in the spring and humid in the summer. Winter temperatures fluctuate between the 20s and 30s, while summer temperatures can soar to the 90s. New York City averages 27 inches of snow each winter, so be sure to pack your parka and snow boots if you plan to be there between November and February. Use the Orbitz.com travel planner to put together your itinerary and choose a temperate time to visit the city.
New York City is an urban adventurer's paradise. From the theaters on Broadway to the lights in Times Square, there is are activities for all ages.
