Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get a sense of the local culture at Fifth Avenue and 9/11 Memorial. Appreciate the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue), Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Times Square, go for a walk through Central Park, admire the masterpieces at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and get engrossed in the history at Ellis Island.

For traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the New York City travel itinerary 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 your sightseeing early on the 25th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
