Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get outdoors at Pocono Environmental Education Center and Fire Island National Seashore. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Bayard Cutting Arboretum and Quogue Wildlife Refuge. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Jacobsburg State Park (in Nazareth), Stokes State Forest (in Branchville) and Callie's Candy Kitchen (in Mountainhome). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Cattus Island County Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Ponquogue Beach, head outdoors with Hudson River Expeditions, and immerse yourself in nature at Swartswood State Park.

To find more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, use the New York City driving holiday planner.

Sydney, Australia to New York City is an approximately 25-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and bus; or do a combination of bus and flight.
