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 Rink at Rockefeller Center make great kid-friendly stops. Step out of New York City with an excursion to Bronx Zoo in Bronx--about 36 minutes away. The adventure continues: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, admire the landmark architecture of Grand Central Terminal, and take in the pleasant sights at The High Line.

To see photos, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our New York City trip planner .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 2°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
