Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Attractions like Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art make great kid-friendly stops. Go for a jaunt from New York City to Bronx to see Bronx Zoo about 36 minutes away. The adventure continues: take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, get your game on at The Rink at Rockefeller Center, and make a trip to Grand Central Terminal.

To find more things to do, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City itinerary maker .

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. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
