Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Let the collections at The Met Cloisters and The Metropolitan Museum of Art capture your imagination. Step out of the city life by going to Bushkill Falls and Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Peters Valley Gallery (in Layton) and Hyde Park (Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site & Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Ground Zero Museum Workshop, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, and explore the galleries of 9/11 Memorial.

For reviews, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the New York City journey builder site .

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to New York City. Expect a daytime high around 69°F in May, and nighttime lows around 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) early enough to drive to Lake George.

A playground for America’s wealthy families, Lake George was nicknamed "Queen of the American Lakes." While these families often stayed in private country houses, a tourism industry built up around them in the early 20th century facilitated by two YMCAs.
Kick off your visit on the 28th (Tue): explore the world behind art at Williams College Museum of Art, do a tasting at Adirondack Winery, and then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Prospect Mountain. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: explore the landscape on two wheels at Warren County Bikeway, play a few rounds at Gooney Golf, and then get engrossed in the history at Lake George Historical Association and Museum.
