Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Relax by the water at Ponquogue Beach and Gunnison Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Belmar Beach (in Belmar), Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach) and Cupsogue Beach County Park (in Westhampton Beach). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Central Park, examine the collection at 9/11 Memorial, kick back and relax at Fire Island National Seashore, and pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument.

For more things to do, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our New York City day trip tool .

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In August, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
