Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Quogue Wildlife Refuge and Cattus Island County Park. For shopping fun, head to Fifth Avenue or Callie's Candy Kitchen. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: The Amazing Olive (in Port Jefferson), Wolf Conservation Center (in South Salem) and Freehold Raceway Mall (in Freehold). And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Bayard Cutting Arboretum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Catharine Catholic Church, appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, and wander the streets of Times Square.

To see photos, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City road trip planner .

March in New York City sees daily highs of 50°F and lows of 35°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sun) so you can travel back home.
