New York City — 4 nights

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.

There's still lots to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, contemplate the long history of 9/11 Memorial, admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and race across the water with a speed boat tour.
