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.
Take a break from the city and head to Speed Boats Tours and Minnewaska State Park Preserve. Get some cultural insight at The Morgan Library & Museum and Millbrook Village historic site. Venture out of the city with trips to Dingmans Falls (in Dingmans Ferry), Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays) and Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue). There's still lots to do: capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, wander the streets of Harlem, admire the majestic nature at Jones Beach State Park, and walk around SeaGlass Carousel at The Battery.

To see more things to do, photos, and tourist information, refer to the New York City trip itinerary builder website.
