Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Relax by the water at Fire Island National Seashore and Ponquogue Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Quogue Wildlife Refuge. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh), Hook Mountain State Park (in Valley Cottage) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). There's lots more to do: make a trip to Fifth Avenue, shop like a local with Shopping Girlfriend NYC, pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, and browse the exhibits of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

To find reviews, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City travel itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
