Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get a sense of the local culture at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Sotheby's. Get outdoors at Sam's Point Preserve and Bushkill Falls. Venture out of the city with trips to Dutchess Rail Trail (in Hopewell Junction), Adams Fairacre Farms (in Wappingers Falls) and Orange County Arboretum (in Montgomery). Next up on the itinerary: explore the activities along Upper Delaware River, admire the sheer force of Ice Caves and Verkeerderkill Falls Trail Hike, take a peaceful walk through Black Rock Forest Consortium, and hike along The Wallkill Valley Rail Trail.

To find photos, ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our New York City day trip planning website .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in October, and nighttime lows around 16°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
