Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. Visit Gateway National Recreation and Jones Beach State Park for some beach relaxation. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Teatown Lake Reservation (in Ossining). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Times Square, look for gifts at Kalustyan's, get a taste of the local shopping with Fifth Avenue, and examine the collection at 9/11 Memorial.

For photos, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, read New York City trip planner.

In March, plan for daily highs up to 50°F, and evening lows to 35°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
