Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
We've included these beaches for you: Joel L. Lefkowitz Park at West Meadow Beach and Cupsogue Beach County Park. Visiting Tribeca Sailing and Point Lookout Beach will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Gilgo Beach (in Babylon), Ocean Grove Beach (in Ocean Grove) and Belmar Beach (in Belmar). Next up on the itinerary: admire all the interesting features of Central Park, appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, tour the pleasant surroundings at Bronx Zoo, and enjoy the sand and surf at Lido Beach.

For reviews, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our New York City travel itinerary 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 July, plan for daily highs up to 35°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
