Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours, A Slice of Brooklyn Bus Tours, Gulliver's Gate, and other attractions. Relax by the water at Bay Head Beach and Mantoloking Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Woodbury Common Premium Outlets and Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Lucas candies (in Haverstraw), Bushkill Falls (in Bushkill) and Philadelphia (Eastern State Penitentiary & Independence National Historical Park). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt, race across the water with a speed boat tour, get to know the fascinating history of Brooklyn Heights Promenade, and make a trip to 9/11 Memorial.
