Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step off the beaten path and head to Bayard Cutting Arboretum and Bushkill Falls. Do your shopping at Fifth Avenue and Chelsea Market. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Quogue Wildlife Refuge (in Quogue), Lakota Wolf Preserve (in Columbia) and Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue). There's lots more to do: immerse yourself in nature at High Point State Park, trek along Pocono Environmental Education Center, savor the flavors at Food & Drink, and enjoy the sea views from Gateway National Recreation.

To see other places to visit, maps, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City trip planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In December, daytime highs in New York City are 11°C, while nighttime lows are 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
