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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Food Tours and Photography Tours. Change things up with a short trip to Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton (about 1h 25 min away). Next up on the itinerary: go for a walk through Central Park, get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, explore and take pictures at Madison Square Garden, and get to know the fascinating history of Brooklyn Heights Promenade.

To find more things to do, photos, maps, and more tourist information, read New York City road trip website .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 69°F, and evening lows to 55°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
