Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Fifth Avenue and SoHo. Take a break from the city and head to Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours and Minnewaska State Park Preserve. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Bailey Arboretum (in Locust Valley), Great Neck Steppingstone Park (in Great Neck) and Anthony's Nose (in Cortlandt Manor). On the 4th (Sat), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Ski Big Bear. And it doesn't end there: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, hike along East River Waterfront Esplanade, make a trip to Statue of Liberty National Monument, and wander the streets of Times Square.

To see maps, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the New York City trip itinerary maker site .

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. Expect a daytime high around 10°C in December, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
