Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. Escape the urban bustle at Manhattan Kayak Company and Point Pleasant Beach. Step out of New York City to go to Brooklyn and see Coney Island, which is approximately 30 minutes away. The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Ellis Island, examine the collection at Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Paul's Chapel.

To see photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City travel route planner .

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In March, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 11°C, while at night they dip to 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
