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 the less-touristy side of things at Bushkill Falls and Fire Island National Seashore. Get in touch with nature at Bayard Cutting Arboretum and Cattus Island County Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Stokes State Forest (in Branchville), High Point State Park (in Sussex) and Pocono Environmental Education Center (in Dingmans Ferry). The adventure continues: meet the residents at Popcorn Park Zoo, settle in for a delightful tour with a horse-drawn carriage tour, explore the striking landscape of Hamilton Grange National Memorial, and take in the pleasant sights at Central Park.

If you are flying in from Sudan, 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 11°C and lows of 3°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
