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 Ponquogue Beach and Fire Island National Seashore. We've included these beaches for you: Long Beach and Belmar Beach. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Ocean Grove Beach (in Ocean Grove), Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook) and Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach). There's still lots to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, take some stellar pictures from Top of the Rock Observation Deck, and look for gifts at Strand Bookstore.

For traveler tips, photos, maps, and other tourist information, read our New York City vacation planner.

In August, daytime highs in New York City are 85°F, while nighttime lows are 72°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
