Explore New York City's surroundings by going to The Puzzle Parlour (in White Plains), Philadelphia (Old City Hall, Independence Hall, &more) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). Next up on the itinerary: stroll around Central Park, take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock, explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and don't miss a visit to Statue of Liberty National Monument.
