Timeshare Vacation – A Guide to Fall in New York City

New York City is a great place for a timeshare vacation in the fall. The warm autumn sun, colorful leaves, and less crowds all combine to make fall in the Big Apple a delight. 

There is an ample list of fall activities to enjoy, as well, including:

1. Medieval Festival in Fort Tryon Park (see top photo) Sunday, September 29th 
See Fort Tryon Park transformed into a Medieval Market Town where performers and festival goers are dressed in medieval garb. Musical performers and minstrels, jugglers, dancers, magic shows and jesters all provide fun entertainment.

Of course no medieval festival is complete without jousting, crafts, food or drink so come to Fort Tryon Park to enjoy it all – at no cost. There is no charge for festival access, though crafts, food and souvenirs are available for purchase.

2. Goold Orchards 25th Annual Apple Festival & Craft Show
Saturday and Sunday, October 12th-13th
Enjoy this quintessential fall festival at Goold Orchards, named by the New York Times as one of the best Apple Festivals in the US.

Here you can indulge your fall fancy by sampling fresh cider donuts, fruit pies and strudels. For a great family activity come pick apples and pumpkins, visit a variety of craft booths, watch entertainment and take a horse drawn carriage ride.

3. Tompkins Square Dog Halloween Parade - Saturday, October 26th
Hosted by the Tompkins Square Dog Run on East 9th Street, this parade draws locals and visitors alike and flaunts New York City's love for all things dog.

Bring Fido and Fifi dressed in their Halloween best to compete for best dog costume prizes. Owners like to dress up as well, often matching their four-legged friends. Come to the Tompkins Square Dog Halloween Parade to participate, or just to people (and dog!) watch or to take great pictures. 

4. Stargazing on the High Line - Every Tuesday evening through October 29th at dusk 
Stargaze on the High Line between West 13th and West 14th Streets in NYC’s famous Chelsea district – for no charge.

Presented by Friends of the High Line in partnership with the Amateur Astronomers Association, these events are open to visitors of all ages so bring the kids for a great family evening everyone can enjoy. Stargazers can use the high-powered telescopes and chat with astronomy experts.

5. New York Pass
One of the best ways to see New York City any time of the year is to invest in a New York Pass. With the pass you'll have free entry to over 80 NYC attractions, get line skipping privileges, and tour reservations. 

Attractions that are partnered with New York Pass include everything from the American Museum of Natural History and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, to the Statue of Liberty Ferry and the Empire State Building Observation Deck.

You’ll enjoy your fall vacation even more with a New York City timeshare rental – budget-friendly right in the middle of Manhattan, starting at just $171/night.
