Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Times Square. Escape the urban bustle at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and East River Waterfront Esplanade. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Bronx Zoo (in Bronx), Steep Rock Reservation (in Washington Depot) and Ansonia Nature & Recreation Center (in Ansonia). There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, go for a walk through Central Park, and don't miss a visit to Statue of Liberty National Monument.

To see maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the New York City trip itinerary planner .

In August, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 84°F, while at night they dip to 71°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
