Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Appreciate the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and New York Public Library. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 9/11 Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral. There's much more to do: go for a walk through Central Park, admire the masterpieces at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, snap pictures at Brooklyn Bridge, and admire all the interesting features of The High Line.

For photos, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read New York City trip itinerary builder website .

Johannesburg, South Africa to New York City is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus.

Located just 140 km (90 mi) from Cuba, Key West is an island only about 6.4 km (4 mi) long and 1.6 km (1 mi) wide.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Fort Zachary Taylor and Dry Tortugas National Park. Step out of the city life by going to The Turtle Hospital and Dolphin Research Center. Change things up with these side-trips from Key West: Fishing Charters & Tours (in Islamorada) and Bahia Honda State Park (in Big Pine Key). And it doesn't end there: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, take a memorable drive along The Overseas Highway, and steep yourself in history at Truman Little White House.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can travel back home.
