Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visiting Island Beach State Park and Lakota Wolf Preserve will get you outdoors. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Cornelia & Florence Bridge Nature Preserve. Venture out of the city with trips to Hawk's Nest Highway (in Port Jervis), 8th Ave Jetty (in Asbury Park) and Main Avenue Galleria (in Ocean Grove). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Sam's Point Preserve.
