Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Stone Church and Snipes Farm & Education Center. Step out of the city life by going to High Point Cross Country Ski Center and Minnewaska State Park Preserve. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Hawk's Nest Highway (in Port Jervis), Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville) and Delicious Orchards (in Colts Neck). There's lots more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Shawangunk Mountains, identify plant and animal life at Lakota Wolf Preserve, tour the pleasant surroundings at Trevor Zoo, and take a memorable drive along The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, use the New York City day trip planning website .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 48°F, and evening lows to 36°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
