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 Tiffany & Co.for some retail therapy. Attractions like Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art make great kid-friendly stops. Go for a jaunt from New York City to Sandy Hook to see Gateway National Recreation about 40 minutes away. It doesn't end there: wander the streets of Times Square and take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building.

To see maps, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, read New York City trip itinerary planner.

In February, daytime highs in New York City are 45°F, while nighttime lows are 30°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
