Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Bring the kids along to Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Philadelphia (Liberty Bell Center, Independence Seaport Museum, &more), Coney Island (in Brooklyn) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). And it doesn't end there: enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, go for a walk through The High Line, admire the landmark architecture of Grand Central Terminal, and wander the streets of Times Square.
