Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Family-friendly places like Central Park and Bronx Zoo will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville), Joel L. Lefkowitz Park at West Meadow Beach (in Stony Brook) and Minnewaska State Park Preserve (in Kerhonkson). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, explore the galleries of 9/11 Memorial, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, and admire all the interesting features of The High Line.

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

If you are flying in from Canada, 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 up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
