Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your list of things to see and do now includes The Yo, Philly Rocky Film Tour, Wissahickon Valley Park, Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, and other attractions. For shopping fun, head to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets or Fifth Avenue. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum and Jones Beach State Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Long Beach (in Long Beach), Seaside Park Beach (in Seaside Park) and Independence National Historical Park (in Philadelphia). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of The Met Cloisters, contemplate the long history of Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt, take in the views from Brooklyn Bridge, and see the interesting displays at New York Public Library.
