Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Take a break from the city and head to Bronx Zoo and Fire Island National Seashore. Appreciate the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Anthony's Nose (in Cortlandt Manor) and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Fifth Avenue, choose your vessel at Narwhal Yacht Charters, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, and take an in-depth tour of Ellis Island.

To find where to stay, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, use the New York City road trip planning app .

December in New York City sees daily highs of 48°F and lows of 36°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
