Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Empire State Building, tour the water at your own pace with Tribeca Sailing, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, and make a trip to Ellis Island.

For maps, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our New York City trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 35°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) early enough to travel to Washington DC.
