Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your inner history buff will appreciate 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island. Step out of the city life by going to Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours and East River Waterfront Esplanade. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville) and Rockland Lake State Park (in Valley Cottage). There's lots more to do: make a trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, and race across the water with a speed boat tour.

For maps, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, read our New York City road trip planning website .

If you are flying in from Italy, 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. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
