Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Philadelphia (Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Independence Hall, & more), Coney Island (in Brooklyn) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). Next up on the itinerary: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, explore and take pictures at The High Line, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, and admire the landmark architecture of Rockefeller Center.

For more things to do, maps, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City road trip planner .

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 2°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
