Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visiting Long Beach and Jones Beach State Park will get you outdoors. Shop till you drop at Fifth Avenue and Tiffany & Co.. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook), Belmar Beach (in Belmar) and Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue). There's much more to do: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and don't miss a visit to Statue of Liberty National Monument.

To see other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City itinerary builder.

Tirana, Albania to New York City is an approximately 22.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central European Time to Eastern Standard Time, which is usually a -6 hour difference.

Although urban sprawl remains synonymous with Houston, most of the city's tourist attractions lie within the relatively small downtown area, surrounded by diverse neighborhoods housing the nation's biggest African-American, Asian-American, and Latino communities.
Do your shopping at Houston Premium Outlets and Rice Village Shops. Get a sense of the local culture at Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site and Monument Hill State Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Sylvan Beach Park (in La Porte), BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir (in Stafford) and Haak Vineyards & Winery Inc (in Santa Fe). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at St Francis Wolf Sanctuary, stroll through Water Wall, steep yourself in history at Sam Houston Park, and get curious at Houston Museum of Natural Science.
