Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step off the beaten path and head to Sam's Point Preserve and Orange County Arboretum. We've included these beaches for you: Island Beach State Park and Gateway National Recreation. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: The Original Ben Franklin 5 & 10 Store (in Lavallette), Van Holten's Chocolates & Sweet Shop (in Seaside Heights) and The Amazing Olive (in Patchogue). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Quogue Wildlife Refuge, hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market, don't miss a visit to Central Park, and relax in the rural setting at Duke Farms.

For more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our New York City trip planner .
