Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
New York City is known for museums, nightlife, shopping, historic sites, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: go for a walk through Central Park, appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, make a trip to Grand central terminal, and admire the striking features of Rockefeller Center.

To see where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, read our New York City holiday planner.

Philadelphia to New York City is an approximately 2-hour train ride. You can also drive; or take a bus. In November, plan for daily highs up to 57°F, and evening lows to 44°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sun) to allow time to take a train back home.
