New York City is one of the most visited cities in the world, and it is comprised of 5 boroughs sitting where the Hudson River meets the Atlantic Ocean. At its core is Manhattan, a densely populated borough that’s among the world’s major commercial, financial and cultural centres. Its iconic sites include skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building and sprawling Central Park. Broadway theater is staged in neon-lit Times Square.

Weather

The weather in New York City in November is very cool, with an average temperature of 13 degrees. We advise our tour members to pack warm clothes, and also to take this into consideration when choosing your racing gear.

Visa

Australian visitors to the United States, for business or tourism, staying 90 days or less, do not need to obtain a visa. However an online travel authorisation needs to be obtained through ESTA, which is a quick, free internet application with authorisation received within a few minutes.
