Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at 9/11 Memorial and Fifth Avenue. Escape the urban bustle at Speed Boats Tours and East River Waterfront Esplanade. There's lots more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Times Square, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, make a trip to Central Park, and explore the galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

For more things to do, reviews, photos, and tourist information, refer to the New York City travel route planning website.

Garfield to New York City is an approximately 13-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Garfield to New York City. In November, daily temperatures in New York City can reach °C, while at night they dip to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) so you can drive to Cape May.

Cape May represents the other Jersey Shore--the one you don't see on TV--the one with a rich history and a refined, relaxed atmosphere.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Atlantic City Boardwalk and Out of the Past Antiques. Get a sense of the local culture at Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and Emlen Physick Estate. Venture out of the city with trips to Downtown Ocean City (in Ocean City), Borgata Casino (in Atlantic City) and Cape Henlopen State Park (in Lewes). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Cape May City Beaches, get in on the family fun at Breakfast in The Sky, look for gifts at Whale's Tale, and brush up on your military savvy at Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum.

Start your trip to Cape May by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
