Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial are good opportunities to explore the local culture. American Museum of Natural History and Ellis Island will appeal to museum buffs. There's still lots to do: go for a walk through Central Park, take a stroll through Times Square, and pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, read our New York City travel route planner.

Getting from Niagara Falls to New York City by combination of bus and flight takes about 5 hours. Other options: do a combination of bus, flight, and train; or drive. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Niagara Falls in July since evenings lows in New York City dip to 72°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
