Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do your shopping at Fifth Avenue and Yunhong Chopsticks. Get outdoors at Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours and Speed Boats Tours. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Schuylkill River Trail (in Philadelphia), Bayard Cutting Arboretum (in Great River) and Minnewaska State Park Preserve (in Kerhonkson). On the 22nd (Sun), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Ski Big Bear. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Times Square, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, browse the exhibits of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and admire the masterpieces at The Museum of Modern Art.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City vacation planning app .

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 10°C in December, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
