Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visit Gateway National Recreation and Fire Island National Seashore for some beach relaxation. Head to Fifth Avenue and Strand Bookstorefor some retail therapy. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Teatown Lake Reservation (in Ossining), Gunnison Beach (in Sandy Hook) and Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, go for a walk through Central Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Long Beach, and look for all kinds of wild species at Bayard Cutting Arboretum.

To see reviews, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City tour planner.

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 11°C in December, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
