Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park and Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt (in Hyde Park), Adams Fairacre Farms (in Wappingers Falls) and Stokes State Forest (in Branchville). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Bushkill Falls, take in nature's colorful creations at Hollister House Garden, identify plant and animal life at Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Shinnecock East County Park.

For where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City trip planner .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 84°F, and evening lows to 71°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
