New York City is a fantastic place to visit, and you can find new things to do around every corner. With plenty of space to cover, a car will help you get from place to place. You'll want to get your rental car at the John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) at the start of your trip. For a little downtime before hitting the frantic pace of the city, you can drive over to Coney Island and explore the boardwalks, or even take a stroll and feel the sand under your feet.
To get a feel for the city, head to Times Square where the ball drops each New Year, to the delight of millions around the country. You can spend some time taking in the artistic SoHo neighborhood, or grab a slice of pizza in Little Italy. You can also take a ferry into New York Harbor to climb the Statue of Liberty, or visit Ellis Island where you might be able to find the signature of one of your ancestors. For an amazing view of the city, be sure to ride up to the observation deck of the Empire State Building.
Your flight time from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to New York City will take around six hours.
