Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Escape the urban bustle at Bronx Zoo and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. Do your shopping at Fifth Avenue and Kalustyan's. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue) and Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook). Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Times Square, admire the striking features of Grand central terminal, make a trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument.

For where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the New York City holiday planning app .

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. In March, plan for daily highs up to 11°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
