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.
Gateway National Recreation and 9/11 Memorial are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Head to Fifth Avenue and Chelsea Marketfor plenty of shopping. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue), Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays) and Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh). On the 4th (Wed), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. Next up on the itinerary: browse the exhibits of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take a stroll through Times Square, kick back and relax at Long Beach, and take in the pleasant sights at Central Park.
