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.
Escape the urban bustle at Fire Island National Seashore and Gateway National Recreation. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like St. Patrick's Cathedral and St. Catharine Catholic Church. Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, explore the world behind art at Frick Collection, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market.

To see traveler tips, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the New York City trip 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 15th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
