Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Family-friendly places like Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art will thrill your kids. When in New York City, make a side trip to see Bronx Zoo in Bronx, approximately 36 minutes away. There's much more to do: make a trip to Empire State Building, steep yourself in history at Ellis Island, wander the streets of Times Square, and appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument.

Plan a trip to New York City easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
