Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Museum-lovers will get to explore The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art. Get a sense of the local culture at Gateway National Recreation and 9/11 Memorial. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Times Square, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Paul's Chapel, shop like a local with Fifth Avenue, and make a trip to Hamilton Grange National Memorial.

To find where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our 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. Expect a daytime high around 11°C in December, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
