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 Stone Church and 9/11 Memorial. Visiting High Point Cross Country Ski Center and Shawnee Mountain Ski Area will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Golden Fish Gallery (in Milford), Paumanok Vineyards (in Aquebogue) and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Ponquogue Beach, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Shawangunk Mountains, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market.

To find where to stay, ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our New York City road trip planning website .

Expect a daytime high around 48°F in December, and nighttime lows around 36°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
