Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
For shopping fun, head to Fifth Avenue or SoHo. You'll explore and learn at 9/11 Memorial and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Times Square, examine the collection at New York Public Library, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, and pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument.

For photos, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, read our New York City travel route planner .

Expect a daytime high around 57°F in November, and nighttime lows around 44°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
