Need a day away to relax, refresh, renew? Just get in your car and go! This first edition of Day Trips from New York City is your guide to hundreds of exciting things to do, see, and discover in your own backyard. With full trip-planning information and tips on where to eat, shop, and stop along the way, you can make the most of your time off and rediscover the simple pleasures of a day trip. Explore places you never knew existed, many free of charge, and most two to three hours from New York City. Do something soothing: Go hiking in the Catskills; leaf-peeping in the Litchfield Hills; or head south to quaint riverside towns like Frenchtown, Lambertville, and New Hope.Do something (mildly) intoxicating: Take a tasting tour of the world-class wineries of the Hudson Valley and the North Fork of Long Island.Do something eerie: Go ghost hunting in Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow, or explore old icons and deserted cultural treasures in Ulster, Dutchess, Rockland, and Putnam Counties.
