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.
Take a break from the city and head to Bronx Zoo and Long Beach. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Times Square, stroll through Central Park, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, and get a taste of the local shopping with Fifth Avenue.

For more things to do, maps, photos, and other tourist information, go to the New York City sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. October in New York City sees daily highs of 23°C and lows of 15°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
