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.
We've included these beaches for you: Long Beach and Gunnison Beach. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 9/11 Memorial and Gateway National Recreation. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh), Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach) and Belmar Beach (in Belmar). There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, explore the striking landscape of Hamilton Grange National Memorial, and take in the pleasant sights at Central Park.
