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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Gateway National Recreation and Fifth Avenue. Popular historic sites such as 9/11 Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral are in your itinerary. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Paul's Chapel, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market.

For maps, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City tour planner.

If you are flying in from Australia, 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 12th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
