Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville) and Minnewaska State Park Preserve (in Kerhonkson). There's lots more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, make a trip to Statue of Liberty National Monument, take a stroll through Times Square, and admire the striking features of Empire State Building.

To see more things to do, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our New York City day trip app .

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. Expect a daytime high around 10°C in December, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
