Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get a sense of the local culture at Fifth Avenue and Times Square. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial will appeal to museum buffs. Step out of New York City with an excursion to Bronx Zoo in Bronx--about 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, take a memorable tour with Tours, explore the landscape on two wheels at East River Waterfront Esplanade, and make a trip to Hamilton Grange National Memorial.

To see more things to do, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
