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.
Head to Fifth Avenue and Strand Bookstorefor some retail therapy. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Gateway National Recreation are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach) and Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Long Beach, stop by Tiffany & Co., take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, and stroll through Central Park.

For photos, reviews, and more tourist information, read our New York City trip generator.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 73°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
