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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Room Escape Games and Food Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Philadelphia (Independence National Historical Park & Philadelphia Museum of Art), Camelback Mountain Resort (in Tannersville) and High Point Cross Country Ski Center (in Sussex). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at New York Public Library, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, engage your brain at Gulliver's Gate, and take in nature's colorful creations at New York Botanical Garden.

For where to stay, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our New York City day trip app .

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 5°C in January, and nighttime lows around -5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
