Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach), Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue) and Bronx (Bronx Zoo & Yankee Stadium). On the 1st (Fri), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Central Park, admire the landmark architecture of Grand central terminal, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, and take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock Observation Deck.

To find traveler tips, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the New York City vacation builder.

In August, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 85°F, while at night they dip to 72°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
