Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Sam's Point Preserve and Breakneck Ridge Loop. Kids will appreciate attractions like Trevor Zoo and The Castle Fun Center. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: The Original Ben Franklin 5 & 10 Store (in Lavallette), Pirates on the Manasquan (in Brick) and High Point Cross Country Ski Center (in Sussex). There's much more to do: stroll through Cornelia & Florence Bridge Nature Preserve, look for all kinds of wild species at Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge, browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market, and delve into the lush surroundings at Black Rock Forest Consortium.

Expect a daytime high around 49°F in March, and nighttime lows around 35°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
