Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Popular historic sites such as Hamilton Grange National Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral are in your itinerary. Get outdoors at Hudson River Greenway and Long Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: NY Boat Rental (in Freeport) and Gunnison Beach (in Sandy Hook). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Times Square, stop by Li-Lac Chocolates, go for a walk through Central Park, and admire the masterpieces at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

To find reviews, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City online trip builder .

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic to New York City is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or do a combination of shuttle and flight.

Cape May

Cape May represents the other Jersey Shore--the one you don't see on TV--the one with a rich history and a refined, relaxed atmosphere.
Escape the urban bustle at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Cape May Point State Park. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Sunset Beach and North Wildwood Beach. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Cape May City Beaches, look for all kinds of wild species at Cape May Bird Observatory, explore and take pictures at Jersey Shore Alpacas, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Wildwood Beach.

Plan my Cape May trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

You can drive from New York City to Cape May in 3 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or do a combination of train, tram, and bus. In March, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
