Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
New York City is known for museums, nightlife, shopping, historic sites, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, don't miss a visit to Statue of Liberty National Monument, admire the striking features of Rockefeller Center, and get great views at Top of the Rock Observation Deck.

Getting from San Francisco to New York City by combination of flight and bus takes about 8.5 hours. Other options: do a combination of flight and train; or drive. The time zone difference moving from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Eastern Standard Time (EST) is 3 hours. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from San Francisco in December, with highs in New York City at 49°F and lows at 38°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
