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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 9/11 Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Get in touch with nature at Bushkill Falls and Worthington State Forest. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Swartswood State Park (in Swartswood), Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue) and Ort Farms (in Long Valley). Next up on the itinerary: immerse yourself in nature at High Point State Park, explore the activities along Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, settle in for a delightful tour with a horse-drawn carriage tour, and don't miss a visit to Hamilton Grange National Memorial.
