New York City
Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Ellis Island, One World Trade Center, St. Paul's Chapel, and other attractions. Appreciate the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Head to Fifth Avenue and Chelsea Marketfor plenty of shopping. There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, make a trip to Times Square, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.

To see more things to do, reviews, maps, and tourist information, use the New York City vacation builder site .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 49°F, and evening lows to 38°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
