New York City

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get some historical perspective at Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site and Old Barracks Museum. Get in touch with nature at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Minnewaska State Park Preserve. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Cattus Island County Park (in Toms River), Tarrywile Park & Mansion (in Danbury) and Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt, explore the striking landscape of Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, and stroll around World Trade Center's Liberty Park.

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. January in New York City sees daily highs of 5°C and lows of -5°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
