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.
Head to Fifth Avenue and Chelsea Marketfor plenty of shopping. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bayard Cutting Arboretum and Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours. There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, meet the residents at Central Park Zoo, explore the striking landscape of Hamilton Grange National Memorial, and stroll through Central Park.

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. December in New York City sees daily highs of 11°C and lows of 3°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
