Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Take a break from the city and head to Long Beach and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Fifth Avenue. Take a break from New York City with a short trip to Gateway National Recreation in Sandy Hook, about 40 minutes away. There's much more to do: make a trip to 9/11 Memorial, take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock Observation Deck, wander the streets of Times Square, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City online itinerary creator.

Change things up with a short trip to Wine Tours & Tastings in Napa (about 1h 10 min away). There's still lots to do: head off the coast to Alcatraz Island, enjoy the sand and surf at China Beach, get to know the fascinating history of Twin Peaks, and admire the masterpieces at Asian Art Museum.
