Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Stone Church and 9/11 Memorial. Take a break from the city and head to High Point Cross Country Ski Center and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. Venture out of the city with trips to Wightman's Fruit Farm (in Kerhonkson), Golden Fish Gallery (in Milford) and Shawangunk Mountains (in Woodstock). There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Trevor Zoo, wander the streets of Times Square, delve into the lush surroundings at Stokes State Forest, and take in the dramatic scenery at Bushkill Falls.

In December in New York City, expect temperatures between 48°F during the day and 36°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
