New York City is simply the most dynamic and cosmopolitan city on Earth. To visit New York is to travel the world, experiencing the authentic cultures and cuisines of every nation. What easier way to show your children the world than on a cruise that stops at every imaginable port on the globe-without ever leaving New York Harbor. Add to this the fabulous entertainment, the renowned museums, the eye-popping skyline vistas, and the single most incredible city park ever built. Who can resist?
New York City for Families is for everyone who's ever wanted to be a New Yorker-whether they're twenty miles away in New Jersey or around the world in Australia. This book includes everything your family needs to know to be something more than just tourists-how, in short, to become temporary New Yorkers, with all the confidence and savvy of the natives. All you'll lack is the accent.
• Find affordable travel
