Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Sam's Point Preserve and Cornelia & Florence Bridge Nature Preserve. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Nyquist-Harcourt Wildlife Sanctuary (in New Paltz), Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge (in Wallkill) and Lucas candies (in Haverstraw). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Black Creek Preserve, grab your bike and head to Edgar Felix Memorial Bikeway, take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, and pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial.

To see photos, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the New York City journey planner .

Expect a daytime high around 49°F in March, and nighttime lows around 35°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Mon) so you can travel back home.
