Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to St. Patrick's Cathedral and Madison Square Garden. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Pocono Environmental Education Center (in Dingmans Ferry) and Nazareth (Franklin Hill Vineyards & Jacobsburg State Park). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Central Park, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, explore the world behind art at Frick Collection, and see the interesting displays at New York Public Library.

To find ratings, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the New York City day trip planning website .

In March, plan for daily highs up to 50°F, and evening lows to 35°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
