Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Go for a jaunt from New York City to Bronx to see Bronx Zoo about 36 minutes away. There's lots more to do: go for a walk through Central Park, enjoy breathtaking views from Top of the Rock Observation Deck, make a trip to Statue of Liberty National Monument, and admire the striking features of Rockefeller Center.

Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Explore Los Angeles' surroundings by going to Anaheim (Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park, & more) and Santa Monica (Bergamot Station & Santa Monica Farmers Market). Pack the 15th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Studios Hollywood. There's still lots to do: look and learn at Griffith Observatory, enjoy some music at Walt Disney Concert Hall, take in nature's colorful creations at The Japanese Garden, and kick back and relax at Venice Beach and Boardwalk.
