Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.

Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park (in Poughkeepsie), Grounds For Sculpture (in Hamilton) and Hyde Park (Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site & Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt). Next up on the itinerary: go for a walk through Central Park, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, and admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
