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 discover tucked-away gems like High Point Cross Country Ski Center and Black Creek Preserve. Step out of the city life by going to Sam's Point Preserve and Cornelia & Florence Bridge Nature Preserve. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville), Ice Caves and Verkeerderkill Falls Trail Hike (in Cragsmoor) and 8th Ave Jetty (in Asbury Park). There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Shawangunk Mountains, delve into the lush surroundings at Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge, admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and identify plant and animal life at Steep Rock Reservation.

To see traveler tips, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City online sightseeing planner .

In January, plan for daily highs up to 40°F, and evening lows to 24°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
