Cold Spring / Peekskill Staycation..All Aboard

What's happening, friends? As the leaves begin to turn a lighter shade of green, it reminds us that the last days of summer are upon us. This time beckons for you to take a few last warm weather ADVENTURES.

We are doing just that this weekend, and are out and about searching for all the best the Hudson Valley has to offer. A ton of City Dwellers do not have access to cars, so we have colloborated with Metro-North and Grand Central Terminal on this trip to show you that exploration awaits, and can be had without owning a vehicle. Whether you live in New York City or just making a pit stop, there is always the urge to escape the city’s hustle and bustle, and see a more relaxed part of New York State, whether for only a day or longer.

This weekend we are heading up to have a STAYCATION in Peekskill/Garrison/Cold Spring Via Metro-North to find out what makes these river towns so incredibly special. No need to navigate or mess with maps, we let Metro-North whisk us away on this Upstate Adventure. So Just sit back and relax let's get this train moving, All aboard.......

Our journey begins in the iconic Grand Central Terminal in New York City.

We hear that the Grand Central Market has some amazing shops and boutiques, and we're dying to check them out. We wanted to curate a picnic basket that we can enjoy once we reach our picturesque destination, so we hit up some incredible vendors within The Grand Central Terminal to help get our grub on. We had a checklist which included Booze, Food & Chocolate.

We found three perfect spots to pick up everything we needed
