At the same time, it can be impossible to find a place to stay in New York City during the busy winter months. If you plan to get a hotel room in NYC for New Years Eve, you might have to book a room over a year in advance. A last minute trip to Manhattan can be fun and exciting as long as you take care of your accommodations before you arrive in the city. The last thing you want to happen is find that there is nowhere to stay, or be forced to spend your entire budget on an expensive luxury hotel in NYC. The good news is that there still plenty of cheap New York hotels available, especially online..

Spending just a few minutes of your time to search the Internet for NYC hotels running winter specials will yield great results. Figure out how many nights you plan to stay and how many people are going to be staying at the hotel with you. You can easily find a great deal of hotels in NYC with rooms available that are close in proximity to the areas that you plan to frequent. Check out what other travelers have to say about the hotels that you are interested, and look at pictures of the suites online. Once you find a cheap NYC hotel that meets all of your criteria you can book a room for free. You won’t have to pay a booking fee and you can pay the balance when you check-in or check-out. That means that you can use your cash to shop, eat and explore all that NYC has to offer without worrying about paying too much for a hotel room.

Those that are new to rafting and kayaking probably want to know where the best rivers in the US are located. You might think that they rest between the hills of California, but for the true water adventurer, Idaho is home to the greatest River in the MidWest. Long regarded as the perfect place for kayaking and rafting, Salmon River runs over 50 miles long. Whether you want to take in the sandy shores and well preserved forests, or barrel through impressive white waves, planning a trip to Salmon River is easy.

Salmon River rafting makes for one of the best destinations for rafters, made available by Orange Torpedo Trips.

After awakening at your safe campsite, you and your group will meet up with a river guide that has been trained and certified to lead you on an awesome white water rafting experience. If you have planned a multi-day trip, you will take on different parts of the Salmon river, finding a new way to enjoy it each day.
