Big Apple

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial will appeal to museum buffs. Take a break from the city and head to East River Waterfront Esplanade and The Pond. Change things up with a short trip to Bronx Zoo in Bronx (about 36 minutes away). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Times Square, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, get a taste of the local shopping with Fifth Avenue, and look for all kinds of wild species at Hallett Nature Sanctuary.

The Sunshine State
The “Sunshine State,” Florida became a favorite winter destination for the affluent crowd over a century ago. Today, the state attracts visitors from around the world with its golden beaches and modern theme parks. You can spend your entire vacation enjoying the state's highly developed seaside areas, but remember that some of Florida's best-kept secrets are in secluded locations. Visit the big cities and their comfortable resorts offering top-notch dining and nightlife, but leave some time to see the peninsula's swampy landscape, filled with wild creatures and native plants. Farther away from the tourist-packed urban areas, the untamed wetlands of Florida offer a selection of things to do, such as kayaking, boat rides, and numerous other outdoor activities.
