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 visit kid-friendly attractions like Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Step out of New York City to go to Oceanville and see Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, which is approximately 1h 55 min away. There's lots more to do: appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, contemplate the long history of 9/11 Memorial, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, and make a trip to Times Square.
