Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Escape the urban bustle at Fire Island National Seashore and Bronx Zoo. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh) and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, go all around town with Narwhal Yacht Charters, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, and go for a walk through Central Park.

To find maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City day trip tool .

In October, daytime highs in New York City are 70°F, while nighttime lows are 57°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
