Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Swartswood State Park and Belmar Beach. Get in touch with nature at Fire Island National Seashore and Ort Farms. Step out of New York City to go to Ocean Grove and see Ocean Grove Beach, which is approximately 1h 05 min away. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Times Square and browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City vacation planner.

If you are flying in from Belgium, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In May in New York City, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 15°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
