Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Fifth Avenue and The Museum of Modern Art are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Museum-lovers will appreciate American Museum of Natural History and New York Public Library. Change things up with a short trip to Bronx Zoo in Bronx (about 42 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Times Square, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Central Park Zoo, make a trip to Empire State Building, and stroll through Central Park.

To see ratings, reviews, photos, and tourist information, go to the New York City 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 January, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 5°C, while at night they dip to -5°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
