Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Take a break from the city and head to East River Waterfront Esplanade and Bronx Zoo. There's much more to do: make a trip to Times Square, race across the water with a speed boat tour, pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hamilton Grange National Memorial.

To see other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, read our New York City online trip planner .

In April, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 61°F, while at night they dip to 45°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
