days
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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Gateway National Recreation and The Morgan Library & Museum. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach) and Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue). On the 8th (Tue), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, make a trip to 9/11 Memorial, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Trinity Church.

For more things to do, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the New York City tour planner.
