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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 9/11 Memorial and Valley Forge National Historical Park. Museum-lovers will get to explore The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: King of Prussia Mall (in King of Prussia), Philadelphia (Kelly Drive, Boathouse Row, &more) and A Day Away Kayak Rentals (in Kingston). There's lots more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Times Square, wander the streets of Fifth Avenue, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and take an in-depth tour of Ellis Island.
