Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Times Square and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Visiting Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours and Hamilton Grange National Memorial will get you outdoors. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Schuylkill River Trail (in Philadelphia) and Minnewaska State Park Preserve (in Kerhonkson). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, browse the exhibits of 9/11 Memorial, go for a walk through Central Park, and grab your bike and head to East River Waterfront Esplanade.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to New York City fast, fun, and easy.

In December, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 48°F, while at night they dip to 36°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
