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 Food Tours and Madison Square Garden. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: William Floyd Estate (in Mastic Beach), Amazing Olive (in Port Jefferson) and TWA Flight 800 International Memorial (in Shirley). Next up on the itinerary: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, immerse yourself in nature at Jacobsburg State Park, take in nature's colorful creations at Stonecrop Gardens, and admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In March in New York City, expect temperatures between 11°C during the day and 1°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
