Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
New York City is known for museums, nightlife, shopping, historic sites, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: go for a walk through Central Park, make a trip to Grand Central Terminal, take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock, and wander the streets of Times Square.

To find maps, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our New York City day trip website .

In August in New York City, expect temperatures between 84°F during the day and 71°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
