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 Ellis Island. Get a sense of the local culture at Gateway National Recreation and Times Square. Go for a jaunt from New York City to Hampton Bays to see Ponquogue Beach about 2 hours away. And it doesn't end there: appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, make a trip to Fifth Avenue, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.

For photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, read New York City trip planner.

If you are flying in from Bahrain, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. December in New York City sees daily highs of 10°C and lows of 2°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
