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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Gateway National Recreation and Jones Beach State Park. Head to Fifth Avenue and Chelsea Marketfor plenty of shopping. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays), Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach) and Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue). There's much more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, admire the striking features of Grand central terminal, enjoy breathtaking views from Top of the Rock Observation Deck, and pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial.

To find more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the New York City tour planner.

If you are flying in from Portugal, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 11°C, while at night they dip to 3°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Wed) so you can travel back home.
