Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Museum-lovers will get to explore American Museum of Natural History and 9/11 Memorial. Do your shopping at Fifth Avenue and SoHo. Next up on the itinerary: admire all the interesting features of Central Park, explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), explore the wide array of goods at T.J. Maxx, and stop by The Strand Bookstore.

For reviews, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the New York City trip planning website .

San Jose to New York City is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or drive. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from San Jose to New York City due to the time zone difference. Prepare for little chillier weather when traveling from San Jose in April: high temperatures in New York City hover around 61°F and lows are around 45°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
