New York City — 3 nights

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
New York City is known for sightseeing, museums, and nightlife. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: go for a walk through Central Park, admire the striking features of Grand Central Terminal, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, and take a stroll through Times Square.

For ratings, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the New York City visit site.

Philadelphia to New York City is an approximately 1.5-hour train ride. You can also drive; or take a bus. In June, plan for daily highs up to 80°F, and evening lows to 65°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sun) so you can go by car to Ithaca.

Ithaca — 2 nights

Ithaca is a city in the Southern Tier-Finger Lakes region of New York.

Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at Harriet Tubman Home, steep yourself in history at Seward House Museum, and then take in the waterfront activity at South Shore Marina on Owasco Lake.

Specialty Museums · Historic Sites · Nightlife
More than the country of car-packed streets seen in TV shows and movies, the United States of America is a complex and diverse home to over 300 million people living in a wide range of landscapes and climates. From its big-city skyscrapers to its sprawling natural parks, the country's ''melting pot'' combines many ethnic groups that share a strong sense of national identity despite their cultural differences. A country of road trips and big blue skies, the United States harbors orderly cities filled with restaurants, parks, museums, and innumerable sightseeing opportunities, as well as pristine natural areas perfect for a holiday in the great outdoors. To see as much as you can of this diverse land quickly, drive over some of the more than 6 million km (4 million mi) of highways leading through deserts, mountain peaks, fertile fields, and giant urban centers.

New York's Wine Country
Defined by wine and water, the Finger Lakes region includes 11 elongated bodies of water spread over 130 km (80 mi) of rolling countryside in the northern section of the state of New York. In addition to the picturesque waterways, the Finger Lakes' main vacation attraction is its more than 100 wineries: the area is a top wine region, often referred to as the East Coast's answer to California's Napa Valley. Tour the wineries and recreational areas dotting the slopes above the lakes, but don't forget to include a trip or two to the region's vibrant towns, known for their lively culinary and nightlife scenes.
