New York City
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 Fire Island National Seashore and Blue Ridge Estate Vineyard & Winery. Visiting Ponquogue Beach and Bayard Cutting Arboretum will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Laurel Lake Vineyards (in Laurel), Cupsogue Beach County Park (in Westhampton Beach) and Bushkill Falls (in Bushkill). The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, learn about winemaking at Paumanok Vineyards, steep yourself in history at William Floyd Estate, and hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market.
