Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You've added The Rink At Rockefeller Center, Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, and other attractions to your itinerary. Bring the kids along to The Metropolitan Museum of Art and New York Public Library. Step out of the city life by going to High Point State Park and Roosevelt Island. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: William Floyd Estate (in Mastic Beach), Sunken Meadow State Park (in Kings Park) and Stokes State Forest (in Branchville). The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Times Square, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, get a taste of the local shopping with Fifth Avenue, and stroll through Central Park.

For reviews, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, use the New York City vacation trip planner.
