Stop 1. New York City (3-4 nights) New York City is a great place to start your adventure. It is where my family is from and where I now reside. This will be the most expensive stop on your tour, but it will also be one of the most intriguing and diverse!   You don't need a car in New York, so wait until you're on your way out before renting one.   You should try Pizza (Artichoke, Prince St., Joe's), Bagels (Ess-a-bagel, Russ+Daughters), Burgers (Emmy Squared, Raoul's, Shake Shack), and Pastrami (Katz Deli) while in NYC.   I've put together a simple itinerary for you below, but you can also read my complete guide to 4 days in New York.   Day 1 Uptown + Times Square Central Park – Loeb Boat House, Bethsheda Fountain, Bow Bridge, Alice + Wonderland.
