Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Family-friendly places like Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art will thrill your kids. Step out of New York City with an excursion to Bronx Zoo in Bronx--about 42 minutes away. The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Empire State Building, admire the striking features of Federal Hall, take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock Observation Deck, and go for a walk through The High Line.

To see ratings, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the New York City tour planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In August, daytime highs in New York City are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
