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 Food Tours and Stonecrop Gardens. Bring the kids along to Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Nazareth (Franklin Hill Vineyards & Jacobsburg State Park) and Chadwick Lake (in Newburgh). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, admire the landmark architecture of Empire State Building, hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market, and explore and take pictures at Madison Square Garden.

To find ratings, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, go to the New York City online journey planner .

In April, plan for daily highs up to 62°F, and evening lows to 47°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
