Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Popular historic sites such as Stone Church and 9/11 Memorial are in your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to High Point Cross Country Ski Center and Shawangunk Mountains. Venture out of the city with trips to Dressel Farms (in New Paltz), Cornelia & Florence Bridge Nature Preserve (in Milford) and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville). There's still lots to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Trevor Zoo, take a peaceful walk through Stokes State Forest, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and take in the dramatic scenery at Bushkill Falls.

For photos, more things to do, and tourist information, use the New York City day trip planning website .

In December, daytime highs in New York City are 48°F, while nighttime lows are 36°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
