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 New York City with a short trip to Bronx Zoo in Bronx, about 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: go for a walk through Central Park, explore and take pictures at The High Line, make a trip to Empire State Building, and pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument.

For ratings, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, read our New York City tour planner.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 72°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
