New York City
Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and Greenwich Village. You'll discover tucked-away gems like New York Public Library and Woodbury Common Premium Outlets. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Philadelphia (Independence National Historical Park, 18th Century Garden of the Independence National Historic Park, &more), Round Valley Recreation Area (in Lebanon) and Liberty Hall Museum (in Union). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Frick Collection, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of The Met Cloisters, and take a stroll through SoHo.
