Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
On the 9th (Tue), hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Times Square Church. On your second day here, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sri Guruvayoorappan Temple, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Jenkinson's Aquarium, and then take a leisurely stroll along Jenkinson's Boardwalk.

Plan my trip to New York City with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Tampa to New York City is an approximately 6-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also fly; or drive. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Tampa in July, with highs in New York City at 86°F and lows at 72°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Thu) so you can go by car to Gettysburg.

Located near the memorial park marking the site of one of the largest Civil War battles, the town of Gettysburg sits in a landscape of rolling green hills with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance.
Visit Gettysburg National Military Park and Shriver House Museum for their historical value. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to DelGrosso's Amusement Park and Jennie Wade House. When in Gettysburg, make a side trip to see Lincoln Caverns and Whisper Rocks in Huntingdon, approximately 1h 40 min away. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, look for gifts at Adams County Winery, steep yourself in history at Eisenhower National Historic Site, and stroll the grounds of Gettysburg National Cemetery.
