Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Bury The Hatchet Princeton - Axe Throwing (in Lawrenceville), Brinton Brook Sanctuary (in Croton on Hudson) and Independence Hall (in Philadelphia). Next up on the itinerary: walk around Central Park, make a trip to Grand Central Terminal, take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock, and explore and take pictures at The High Line.

Sydney, Australia to New York City is an approximately 26-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and bus. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 15 hours traveling from Sydney to New York City. Traveling from Sydney in April, expect New York City to be a bit cooler, temps between 19°C and 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) so you can travel to Los Angeles.

Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Change things up with these side-trips from Los Angeles: Northwood Gratitude and Honor Memorial (in Irvine), The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch (in Carlsbad) and Disneyland Park (in Anaheim). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at The Getty Center, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, look and learn at Griffith Observatory, and take in nature's colorful creations at The Japanese Garden.

Plan my Los Angeles trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
