Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visit 9/11 Memorial and Hamilton Grange National Memorial for their historical value. Do some cultural sightseeing at Fifth Avenue and Ellis Island. Go for a jaunt from New York City to Bronx to see Bronx Zoo about 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take a stroll through Times Square, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, and explore the activities along Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir.

To see ratings, maps, reviews, and tourist information, read New York City day trip planning tool .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 48°F, and evening lows to 36°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
