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 High Point Cross Country Ski Center and Shawangunk Mountains. Take a break from the city and head to Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Ponquogue Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: The Music Man Singing Ice Cream Shoppe (in Lavallette), Peconic River Herb Farm (in Calverton) and Hawk's Nest Highway (in Port Jervis). There's more to do: Head underground at Stone Church and don't miss a visit to Times Square.
