New York City

— 10 nights

Big Apple

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get a sense of the local culture at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. Kids will appreciate attractions like Central Park and 9/11 Memorial. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Philadelphia (Liberty Bell Center, Schuylkill River Trail, &more) and Great Neck Steppingstone Park (in Great Neck). There's still lots to do: race across the water with a speed boat tour, examine the collection at New York Public Library, walk around The High Line, and grab your bike and head to East River Waterfront Esplanade.
