New York City

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Skylands New Jersey Botanical Gardens (in Ringwood), Philadelphia (Washington Square Park, Liberty Bell Center, &more) and Boscobel House and Gardens (in Garrison). There's lots more to do: go for a walk through Central Park, take a stroll through Times Square, walk around The High Line, and explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

To find where to stay, photos, and tourist information, go to the New York City trip itinerary maker website.

The Last Frontier
The country's largest state, Alaska is also its least densely populated. America's final frontier, the state lies on the Arctic Circle and features some of the highest mountains in the United States. Today, several million people flock annually to the state's pristine wilderness areas, which shelter a diverse plant and animal life and offer a great selection of things to do. Tailor-made for adventurous types wishing to leave civilization behind, Alaska can also be an extremely expensive vacation destination, with few transportation options and much of its land accessible only by plane or helicopter.
