Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get some historical perspective at 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island. Get in touch with nature at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Narwhal Yacht Charters. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Bronx Zoo (in Bronx), Quogue Wildlife Refuge (in Quogue) and Bayard Cutting Arboretum (in Great River). Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, go for a walk through Times Square, and make a trip to Central Park.

Plan my New York City trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

If you are flying in from Kenya, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 31°C in September, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.

The city of Niagara Falls houses the U.S.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Mon): enjoy breathtaking views from Niagara Falls Observation Tower, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Mary of the Cataract R. C. Parish, then steep yourself in history at Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin D. Martin House Complex, and finally stop by Walden Galleria Mall. On the 9th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: contemplate the long history of Old Fort Niagara and then try your luck at Seneca Niagara Casino.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Niagara Falls fast, fun, and easy.

You can do a combination of bus and flight from New York City to Niagara Falls in 5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and bus; or drive. In October, Niagara Falls is a bit cooler than New York City - with highs of 20°C and lows of 9°C. On the 10th (Wed), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
