Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like 9/11 Memorial and Statue of Liberty National Monument. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Upper Delaware River and The Original Ben Franklin 5 & 10 Store. Venture out of the city with trips to Bliss Price Arboretum and Wildlife Sanctuary (in Eatontown), Balloon Rides (in Middletown) and Edgar Felix Memorial Bikeway (in Manasquan). There's much more to do: take a peaceful walk through Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge, get a taste of the local shopping with Shopping Girlfriend NYC, hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Tiles For America.

To see more things to do, photos, and tourist information, go to the New York City day trip planning app .

In April, plan for daily highs up to 61°F, and evening lows to 45°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
