Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Kids will appreciate attractions like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. Statue of Liberty National Monument and 9/11 Memorial are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with a short trip to Bronx Zoo in Bronx (about 36 minutes away). There's lots more to do: go for a walk through Central Park, admire the masterpieces at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), take a stroll through Times Square, and see the interesting displays at New York Public Library.

For maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City day trip website .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In December in New York City, expect temperatures between 10°C during the day and 2°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
