Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visit 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island for their historical value. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Times Square, shop like a local with Fifth Avenue, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

To find more things to do, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, go to the New York City trip planner.

In March, plan for daily highs up to 49°F, and evening lows to 35°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
