Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do your shopping at Golden Fish Gallery and Chelsea Market. Step out of the city life by going to Ski Big Bear and Minnewaska State Park Preserve. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Peters Valley Gallery (in Layton), Stone Church (in Dover Plains) and High Point Cross Country Ski Center (in Sussex). There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Shawangunk Mountains, pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, admire the majestic nature at Schunnemunk State Park, and browse the exhibits of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

For where to stay, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, read our New York City day trip website .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 10°C, while at night they dip to 2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
