New York City

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Explore hidden gems such as Food Tours and Grounds For Sculpture. Venture out of the city with trips to Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park (in Poughkeepsie), Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum (in Hyde Park) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). There's much more to do: go for a walk through Central Park, capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at The Met Cloisters, and walk around Brooklyn Bridge Park.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in May, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
