As October is usually the beginning of fall in NYC, the leaves, especially in Central Park, are just glorious and the first hints appear the holiday season is just around the corner.

If we’re lucky, the NY Yankees are on their way to the World Series and the NY Giants and NY Jets are doing well so far in football season. Add your event to the New York City Events Activities October calendar.

Spa Week NYC - Great Jones Spa

October 20-26, 2014; Reservations open September 15, 2014

Hundreds of top spas around the city offer treatments for $50. Facials, massages, laser hair removal and more. My favorite spa is Great Jones (at left), because of their amazing water lounge, steam and sauna, however, they no longer have the best spa week deals. Another great spa that partakes in Spa Week is Elizabeth Arden. See Spa Week for details.
