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 Upper Delaware River and Catskill Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Hawk's Nest Highway (in Port Jervis), Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park (in Poughkeepsie) and Room Escape Games (in Ronkonkoma). There's much more to do: delve into the lush surroundings at Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge, identify plant and animal life at Ken Lockwood Gorge WIldlife Management Area, take in the awesome beauty at Walnut Mountain Park, and explore the activities along Delaware Water Gap.

For photos, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City driving holiday planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
