Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Head to Fifth Avenue and Seaport District NYCfor some retail therapy. Let the collections at 9/11 Memorial and Yunhong Chopsticks capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to 8th Ave Jetty (in Asbury Park), Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville) and Ocean Grove Beach (in Ocean Grove). Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Times Square, admire all the interesting features of Central Park, admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and browse the exhibits of Ellis Island.

For other places to visit, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City online road trip planner .

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 August in New York City, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 25°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
