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 Ski Big Bear and Wightman Fruit Farm. Venture out of the city with trips to High Point Cross Country Ski Center (in Sussex), Cragsmoor Stone Church (in Cragsmoor) and Poughkeepsie (Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park & Art Centro). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Central Park, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, admire all the interesting features of Woodstock Farm Sanctuary, and take an in-depth tour of The D&H Canal Historical Society and Museum.

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In December in New York City, expect temperatures between 10°C during the day and 2°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
