Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Relax by the water at Pike's Beach and Ocean Grove Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Shinnecock East County Park and 8th Ave Jetty. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Bushkill Falls (in Bushkill), Dingmans Falls (in Dingmans Ferry) and Bedell Cellars (in Cutchogue). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Times Square, make a trip to Statue of Liberty National Monument, go for a charming ride with a horse-drawn carriage tour, and browse the exhibits of Ellis Island.

For reviews, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City travel route builder site .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 35°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Explore hidden gems such as Koko Crater Railway Trail and Kayaking & Canoeing. The adventure continues: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, and enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach.

For other places to visit, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu trip app .
