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 Tiles For America. Let the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Alley Pond Environmental Center (in Douglaston). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Fifth Avenue, get a taste of the local shopping with Shopping Girlfriend NYC, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, and grab your bike and head to East River Waterfront Esplanade.

To find photos, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City day trip planning app .

In February in New York City, expect temperatures between 46°F during the day and 29°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
