Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Gateway National Recreation and Jones Beach State Park. Step out of the city life by going to Bronx Zoo and Central Park Zoo. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, tour the water at your own pace with Narwhal Yacht Charters, admire the striking features of Empire State Building, and make a trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

For where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the New York City trip planner .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 11°C in March, and nighttime lows around 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
