New York City

— 15 nights

Big Apple

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Venture out of the city with trips to Gun For Hire Shooting Range (in Woodland Park) and Philadelphia (Benjamin Franklin Museum & Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts). There's much more to do: stroll through Central Park, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, admire the landmark architecture of Grand Central Terminal, and explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
