Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
On the 3rd (Sat), take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, then wander the streets of Times Square, and then get some thrills out on the water with Sea the City Jet Ski Tours. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 4th (Sun): pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, get to know the fascinating history of World Trade Center Memorial Foundation, and then explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

More than the country of car-packed streets seen in TV shows and movies, the United States of America is a complex and diverse home to over 300 million people living in a wide range of landscapes and climates. From its big-city skyscrapers to its sprawling natural parks, the country's ''melting pot'' combines many ethnic groups that share a strong sense of national identity despite their cultural differences. A country of road trips and big blue skies, the United States harbors orderly cities filled with restaurants, parks, museums, and innumerable sightseeing opportunities, as well as pristine natural areas perfect for a holiday in the great outdoors. To see as much as you can of this diverse land quickly, drive over some of the more than 6 million km (4 million mi) of highways leading through deserts, mountain peaks, fertile fields, and giant urban centers.
