What to Do on a Bus Trip to New York this Fall


Being in NYC during the fall is like stepping into a special scene, almost like we're characters in a romantic comedy movie. The air turns cool, and the scent of leaves fills our noses. It's a fact: NYC is one of the top places to enjoy the very best of the fall season. There's everything from exciting Halloween events to festivals that show off the stunning fall leaves. Autumn in NYC is truly something special! We cover a few fun things to do this fall when you book a bus ticket to New York.

1. Go to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is bringing back its stunning nighttime light show to the area. Called Lightscape, it's a path filled with art that's lit up by local and global artists. There's the famous Winter Cathedral and a bigger Fire Garden, all shining with over a million lights, colors, and music. 

And don't worry about being hungry – there will be food places along the path. You can warm up with hot cocoa, hot cider, and mulled wine, and there will also be light snacks, cookies, and sweets.

2. Drink Coffee at the New York Coffee Festival

The upcoming New York City Coffee Festival is returning this fall, taking over the Metropolitan Pavilion for a three-day event. During this festival, you can expect a variety of coffee-related activities such as delicious food, creative cocktails, live music, and artistic displays.

Coffee lovers will also have the chance to engage with The Lab program, which offers hands-on demonstrations, educational workshops, insightful discussions, tastings, a fun cocktail masterclass, and even a latte art competition – not to mention the chance to appreciate intricate coffee-inspired artwork.

3. Get Photos at the Color Factory

As fall arrives, the world gets dressed in the most beautiful colors – think crunchy red leaves and vibrant orange pumpkins. And guess what? Color Factory is getting into the autumn spirit too! In the heart of Soho, this interactive art museum is turning into a Halloween wonderland called Haunted Hues.

If you take a BestBus luxury bus to New York this fall and visit this event, you'll find a pumpkin patch with a twist that's unique to Color Factory. And if you're up for a challenge, there's a new scavenger hunt where you can search for hidden treasures all around the museum.

4. Go to the Bronx Zoo for Pumpkin Nights

The Bronx Zoo is getting ready for an incredible pumpkin party, and it's going to be something totally new for this famous place. During this autumn festival, you'll see over 5,000 pumpkins carved with animal designs lighting up a path like jack-o’-lanterns. But that's not all – there will be live shows where they carve pumpkins right in front of you, fun games, and delicious fall snacks and food trucks.
