Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get outdoors at Shawangunk Mountains and Sam's Point Preserve. Step off the beaten path and head to Balloon Rides and Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge. Venture out of the city with trips to 8th Ave Jetty (in Asbury Park), Ice Caves and Verkeerderkill Falls Trail Hike (in Cragsmoor) and Schunnemunk State Park (in New Windsor). There's more to do: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial.

For more things to do, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, go to the New York City road trip planning website .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 11°C in March, and nighttime lows around 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
