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.
Change things up with a short trip to Bronx Zoo in Bronx (about 42 minutes away). Next up on the itinerary: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, make a trip to Grand central terminal, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, and explore the galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

To find reviews, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, read our New York City holiday planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 11°C, while at night they dip to 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
