Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Family-friendly places like Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art will thrill your kids. Change things up with a short trip to Bronx Zoo in Bronx (about 36 minutes away). There's much more to do: make a trip to Empire State Building, browse the exhibits of 9/11 Memorial, admire the landmark architecture of Grand Central Terminal, and examine the collection at New York Public Library.

July in New York City sees daily highs of 86°F and lows of 72°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
