Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step out of New York City to go to Bronx and see Bronx Zoo, which is approximately 36 minutes away. There's much more to do: admire all the interesting features of Central Park, go for a walk through The High Line, steep yourself in history at Ellis Island, and take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock.

Lake George ©
A playground for America’s wealthy families, Lake George was nicknamed "Queen of the American Lakes." While these families often stayed in private country houses, a tourism industry built up around them in the early 20th century facilitated by two YMCAs.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lake George: Adirondack Experience, The Museum on Blue Mountain Lake (in Blue Mountain Lake) and Square Eddy Expeditions (in North Creek). And it doesn't end there: get your game on at Pirates Cove Adventure Golf, cast your line with a fishing tour, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and delve into the lush surroundings at Charles Lathrop Demonstration Pack Forest.
