Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
We've included these beaches for you: Jenkinson's Boardwalk and Jones Beach State Park. You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Long Beach (in Long Beach), Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue) and Belmar Beach (in Belmar). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Times Square, enjoy the sea views from Gateway National Recreation, kick back and relax at Ocean Grove Beach, and pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial.

For where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City trip planner .

If you are flying in from Morocco, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In May, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 24°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
