Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Attractions like Central Park and Statue of Liberty National Monument make great kid-friendly stops. Step out of New York City to go to Bronx and see Bronx Zoo, which is approximately 36 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.

To see reviews, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City travel planner .

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
