Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Relax by the water at Ocean Grove Beach and Pike's Beach. Visiting Hamilton Grange National Memorial and Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Schunnemunk State Park (in New Windsor), Minnewaska State Park Preserve (in Kerhonkson) and Schuylkill River Trail (in Philadelphia). There's still lots to do: go for a walk through Central Park, wander the streets of Fifth Avenue, explore the activities along New York Harbor, and tee off at The Golf Club at Chelsea Piers.

To find maps, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the New York City trip itinerary maker site .

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 10°C in December, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
