Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Bring the kids along to The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park. Fifth Avenue and American Museum of Natural History are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Lido Beach (in Lido Beach) and Point Lookout Beach (in Point Lookout). The adventure continues: appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, take in nature's colorful creations at Hallett Nature Sanctuary, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, and wander the streets of Times Square.
