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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours and Photography Tours. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Grounds For Sculpture (in Hamilton) and Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum (in Hyde Park). The adventure continues: stroll around Central Park, appreciate the extensive heritage of Brooklyn Heights Promenade, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City sightseeing planning website.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major aiports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. December in New York City sees daily highs of 10°C and lows of 2°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
