Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Bring the kids along to Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. There's much more to do: enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art, don't miss a visit to Grand Central Terminal, and go for a walk through The High Line.

For other places to visit, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City driving holiday planning site .

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