Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get some historical perspective at 9/11 Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Appreciate the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach), Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Times Square, make a trip to Fifth Avenue, steep yourself in history at Ellis Island, and take in the pleasant sights at Central Park.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City road 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. In May, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
