Here is just a little taste of all the fun we’ve had.
We drove to Cold Spring:
We had a wonderful lunch at Richard Gere’s Bedford Post Inn Barn (the drive to Bedford is stunning and an experience in itself):
…and hiked Turkey Mountain:
We took the train to Manhattan, walked the High Line…
After walking the High Line from start to the end, we had High Tea at the famed Plaza Hotel. It’s $50 a person for a few tiny sandwiches and sweet threats. Frugal tip: share one and pay the $20 for the second person — it’s enough food for two.
My mom really wanted to see Franklin D. Roosevelt’s birth home and library, so we drove up the Hudson Valley for an hour to Hyde Park to check it out.
Rhinebeck, a quaint town in Northern Duchess County known for it’s antique store and beautiful houses, is only 10 minutes further and I finally got to check it out on this trip.
After a little treat…
…and shopping a this adorable stationary/gift store…
