New York City

— 3 nights

Big Apple

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 still lots to do: take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, get great views at Top of the Rock, wander the streets of Times Square, and contemplate the long history of 9/11 Memorial.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to New York City fast, fun, and easy.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to New York City. In May, plan for daily highs up to 69°F, and evening lows to 55°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Wed) to allow enough time to take a train to Washington DC.

There's much more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, pause for some photo ops at Jefferson Memorial, and get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
