Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Take a break from the city and head to Independence National Historical Park and Bushkill Falls. Step off the beaten path and head to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Hyde Park (Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, & more), Philadelphia (Eastern State Penitentiary & Philadelphia Museum of Art) and Ansonia Nature & Recreation Center (in Ansonia). There's still lots to do: explore and take pictures at Central Park, identify plant and animal life at Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge, get to know the fascinating history of Brooklyn Heights Promenade, and take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building.

If you are flying in from Colombia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In August, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
