A Day Guide to Cold Spring, NY

Updated: Oct 25, 2021

Fall weather be damned! It doesn’t matter if it’s funky or fab outside, Cold Spring, NY, is a hot spot for a super fun day trip. Going up or down the Hudson River to this idyllic village is a breeze with Metro North Hudson Line.

Head north from Grand Central Terminal (a 70-minute ride) or south from Poughkeepsie (less than 30 minutes) via Metro North Hudson Line for a panoramic view to this postcard perfect riverside village.

We at Hudson Valley Happenings relish the easy life so grab a coffee and a window seat and enjoy the best river view in the East.

If you're headed down river like us, you get a great view of Bannerman Castle ruins not far from Beacon, NY.
