Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Attractions like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park make great kid-friendly stops. Escape the urban bustle at Bronx Zoo and Speed Boats Tours. There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Times Square, make a trip to Statue of Liberty National Monument, explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.

For where to stay, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, use the New York City trip planner.
