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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Food Tours and Madison Square Garden. The adventure continues: make a trip to Central Park, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

To see other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City trip generator.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to New York City. Expect a daytime high around 69°F in May, and nighttime lows around 56°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
