Big Apple

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.

Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Rockaway Beach (in Far Rockaway), Long Beach (in Long Beach) and Great Neck Steppingstone Park (in Great Neck). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at The Met Cloisters, see the interesting displays at Ground Zero Museum Workshop, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The Empire State
Home to the country's most populous city, the state of New York is a major gateway for immigration into the United States, but also one of the nation's prime holiday destinations. Take a trip down the state's numerous wilderness trails and scenic roads to visit quaint small towns, sandy beaches, historical estates, and artist colonies. Though the majority of visitors head for the big-city restaurants, theaters, and museums, you can venture deeper into the rugged and remote mountain areas to discover a world of picturesque forests, rivers, mountains, and lakes. New York also boasts the nation's largest forest preserve, encompassing much of the northeastern lobe of the state.
