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 Gateway National Recreation for their historical value. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Long Beach and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. When in New York City, make a side trip to see Bronx Zoo in Bronx, approximately 42 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Times Square, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, and take a stroll through Fifth Avenue.
