New York City — 3 nights

Big Apple

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Food Tours and Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours. There's lots more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, see the interesting displays at Ground Zero Museum Workshop, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and walk around World Trade Center's Liberty Park.

For more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City road trip planner.
