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 the city and head to Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Fire Island National Seashore. Do some cultural sightseeing at Fifth Avenue and Times Square. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh), Turkey Mountain (in Yorktown Heights) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). And it doesn't end there: tour the water at your own pace with Narwhal Yacht Charters, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, contemplate the waterfront views at New York Harbor, and appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial.

For other places to visit, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our New York City tour planner.

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 9th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
