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 cultural insight at 9/11 Memorial and Times Square. Get some historical perspective at Hamilton Grange National Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Schunnemunk State Park (in New Windsor), Minnewaska State Park Preserve (in Kerhonkson) and Schuylkill River Trail (in Philadelphia). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, get engrossed in the history at Ellis Island, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, and pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument.

To find maps, photos, reviews, and tourist information, use the New York City road trip planner .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 2°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
