Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visit Cupsogue Beach County Park and Great Neck Steppingstone Park for some beach relaxation. Family-friendly places like Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art will thrill your kids. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Joel L. Lefkowitz Park at West Meadow Beach (in Stony Brook), Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville) and Point Lookout Beach (in Point Lookout). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at 9/11 Memorial, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, take a stroll through Times Square, and get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour.
