Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visit 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island for their historical value. Take a break from the city and head to Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Speed Boats Tours. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: New Canaan Nature Center (in New Canaan), Philadelphia (Love Park, Reading Terminal Market, &more) and Mianus River Gorge Preserve (in Bedford). And it doesn't end there: stroll around Central Park, wander the streets of Fifth Avenue, stop by The Strand Bookstore, and explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
