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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Get a sense of the local culture at Fifth Avenue and American Museum of Natural History. When in New York City, make a side trip to see Bronx Zoo in Bronx, approximately 42 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Times Square, explore the world behind art at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and stroll through Long Beach.
