New York City

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Relax by the water at Fire Island National Seashore and Ponquogue Beach. Explore hidden gems such as William Floyd Estate and Kadampa Meditation Center New York and World Peace Temple. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Grey Towers National Historic Site (in Milford), Blue Ridge Estate Vineyard & Winery (in Saylorsburg) and Paumanok Vineyards (in Aquebogue). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, enjoy the sea views from Gateway National Recreation, learn about winemaking at Laurel Lake Vineyards, and enjoy the sand and surf at Cupsogue Beach County Park.
