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 explore the less-touristy side of things at High Point Cross Country Ski Center and Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Morrison Gallery (in Kent), Kadampa Meditation Center New York and World Peace Temple (in Glen Spey) and Orvis (in Millbrook). There's still lots to do: go for a walk through Central Park, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, steep yourself in history at 9/11 Memorial, and make a trip to Grand Central Terminal.

To find maps, reviews, photos, and tourist information, you can read our New York City tour itinerary planner.
