Description:

DO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING DESCRIBE YOU?

- You relish drinking a glass of wine in a beautiful outdoor setting on a weekend afternoon.
- You geek out about micro-batch anything (but especially bourbon & whiskey!).
- You are visiting New York City for a few days or longer.
- You venture off the beaten path when you travel and like to find unique hidden gems most tourists don't know about.
- All of the above!

If you said 'yes' to any or all of the above, keep reading to find out why the Wine & Whiskey Trail itinerary is a day-trip designed for you!

MICRO-BATCH WHISKEY

Love a good libation? Sample micro-batch bourbons, whiskeys, apple vodkas and more from a distillery that uses only 100 New York corn, raw fruits and grains. Add splash of water or homemade bitters and compare the difference in flavors. As an added bonus, take a tour and learn how everything is made on-site. Enjoy your afternoon nip on the porch overlooking the historic gristmill and Shawangunkill creek and mosey around the country store. Bring extra cash to take a few of these sweet bottles with you for gifts (if you can resist keeping them yourself!).

WINE FROM THE LOCALLY-GROWN VINE

Just minutes from the distillery, sample red and white wines from two family-owned and operated vineyards situated in idyllic country settings with mountain and farm views. The grapes are grown, harvested and fermented on-site so you get the true taste of the Hudson Valley.

LUNCH AT A HISTORIC GRISTMILL AND DINNER IN TOWN WITH NY CHEFS

Start your day at a historic gristmill founded in the late 1700's and situated on the Shawagunk Kill creek. Enjoy your lunch inside the gristmill or outside on the deck. Finish your day at an Italian-inspired restaurant owned and operated by NYC chefs with both a seasonal and regular menu and wine-pairings hand-selected to compliment the menu.

THE INSIDE SCOOP

Check out the Appendix for insider's tips, suggestions for hiking and biking trails, all the local hotspots for additional eats and treats, and seasonal suggestions like snowshoeing or rock climbing in the 'Gunks (the best climbing on the East Coast!). The Wine & Whiskey Trail itinerary is recommended for a weekend during the months of April - November for day-trippers 21 years of age or older. This itinerary requires a car due to the off-the-beaten path destinations.

**Don't forget to bring a designated driver!**

NOT YET CONVINCED?

I chose to write the Wine & Whiskey Trail itinerary because The Hudson Valley and New Paltz was my home for nearly three years. Natives of the area know that the Hudson Valley is one of New York State's best kept secrets! Most people come to New York and spend all their time beneath the skyscrapers of Manhattan without realizing that magnificent outdoor scenes and vibrant towns lie just north of "the City" (a New Yorkers shorthand for "New York City"). A haven for artists, foodies, and nature-lovers, the wilderness of the Hudson Valley is undeniably enriched and infused by the talent and energy that flows up from the weekenders and former residents of New York City. In essence, visitors and residents of the Hudson Valley get the best of both the city and country worlds! Where else on the East Coast can you hike for miles in the wilderness, dine at a Zagat-rated restaurant with world-class chefs, and see a theater production in the same day?! Visit the Hudson Valley and see for yourself.

BONUS!

To create a three-day visit in the same area, check out my other two day-trip itineraries entitled Day Trip from New York City: Mountains, Falls & a Funky Little Town as well as Day Trip from New York City: Heights of the Hudson Valley (Bridges and Ridges).

THE LONGEST ELEVATED PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE IN THE WORLD (PLUS ANOTHER HISTORIC NY SUSPENSION BRIDGE!)

Drive across the majestic Franklin Delano Roosevelt Bridge (referred to by locals as the Mid-Hudson Bridge) and then stroll across the nearby Walkway Over the Hudson, the longest, elevated pedestrian bridge in the world with views of the Catskill Mountains, Hudson River, and city of Poughkeepsie. Recently opened as a state park, the Walkway Over the Hudson features panels and a call-in guide that explain the unique history of the bridge and its revitalization.

A SECLUDED MOUNTAINTOP RESORT BY A NATURAL GLACIAL LAKE

Next, travel to Mohonk Mountain House, a secluded historic mountain-top resort situated by a natural glacial lake. Explore the Victorian style 7-story castle learning about the history of Smiley family who originally founded it as well as the forming of the natural glacial lake, the nature preserve and local flora and fauna. Grab a snack, pick up a few souvenirs at the shop, stroll the gardens, or enjoy lakeside views from a rocking chair on the porch!

SKYTOP TOWER WITH A VIEW OF 6 US STATES

The 'apex' of this itinerary, on a clear day, will render a view of no less than 6 US States! Choose the 'short' or the 'long' hike to the Sky Top tower which overlooks the town of New Paltz, Mohonk Mountain House, the Catskill Mountains, and the Hudson Valley. If you choose the long path, you will find a delightful pond and gazebo situated on the Shawangunk ridge, which affords particularly scenic photo shoot opportunities.

FARM TO TABLE FOOD AND ONE OF THE HOTTEST BRUNCH SPOTS IN THE HUDSON VALLEY

Start the day out at one of the most popular brunch spots in the Hudson Valley and finish your day at a farm-to-table restaurant in New Paltz that features dishes made from locally sourced ingredients. Inside and outside seating available in both places!

THE INSIDE SCOOP

The Appendix is packed with insider's tips, suggestions for additional hiking and biking trails, local hotspots for good eats and treats, and seasonal suggestions like snowshoeing or rock climbing in the 'Gunks (the best climbing on the East Coast!). The best time to visit the Hudson Valley is April - November, but those who come December - March can also enjoy this itinerary in winter with the right cold-weather gear. It is possible to take public transportation for this itinerary, but it is strongly recommended that a rental car be used.

THE MOUNTAINS

Just 90 minutes north of the greatest city on earth (New York City, of course!), lays the Shawangunk and Catskill Mountains*. The Shawangunk Mountain Ridge is famous in the rock-climbing world because it best climbing spot on the East Coast. For those who don't enjoy hanging off rock-faces, however, the Shawangunk Mountains are filled with hiking trails through forest, meadow, and marshy habitats as well as natural glacial lakes, waterfalls, and views of the Hudson Valley.

*For all my fact-lovers and literature geeks, the Catskills are the setting for the famous Rip Van Winkle stories!

NATURAL GLACIAL LAKES, RIVERS, & WATERFALLS

The Shawangunks contain several natural mountain-top glacial lakes that provide visitors stunning views and a chance to take a cool dip in water so clean you can drink it! This day-trip itinerary includes a mild-moderate hike around one of the most popular of those glacial lakes and a short walk to a nearby 60 ft waterfall.

FOOD & DRINK

With an itinerary meant to keep you on your toes, it's a good thing that fresh food and drink will be an important part of your day. Start out at the hottest brunch spot in town and finish off at a hoppin' brewpub (no pun intended!) with seasonal and year-round beers on tap. The itinerary is also jam-packed with additional food & drink suggestions and even includes a visit to a boutique chocolate store with organic, vegan, and specialty hand-crafted chocolates...right on the Rail Trail!

New York Times Book Review 10 Best Books of 2018

A New York Times Notable Book 

The #1 New York Times bestseller.

A brilliant and brave investigation into the medical and scientific revolution taking place around psychedelic drugs--and the spellbinding story of his own life-changing psychedelic experiences


When Michael Pollan set out to research how LSD and psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) are being used to provide relief to people suffering from difficult-to-treat conditions such as depression, addiction and anxiety, he did not intend to write what is undoubtedly his most personal book. But upon discovering how these remarkable substances are improving the lives not only of the mentally ill but also of healthy people coming to grips with the challenges of everyday life, he decided to explore the landscape of the mind in the first person as well as the third. Thus began a singular adventure into various altered states of consciousness, along with a dive deep into both the latest brain science and the thriving underground community of psychedelic therapists. Pollan sifts the historical record to separate the truth about these mysterious drugs from the myths that have surrounded them since the 1960s, when a handful of psychedelic evangelists inadvertently catalyzed a powerful backlash against what was then a promising field of research.

A unique and elegant blend of science, memoir, travel writing, history, and medicine, How to Change Your Mind is a triumph of participatory journalism. By turns dazzling and edifying, it is the gripping account of a journey to an exciting and unexpected new frontier in our understanding of the mind, the self, and our place in the world. The true subject of Pollan's "mental travelogue" is not just psychedelic drugs but also the eternal puzzle of human consciousness and how, in a world that offers us both suffering and joy, we can do our best to be fully present and find meaning in our lives.

"I read Little Fires Everywhere in a single, breathless sitting." Jodi Picoult

To say I love this book is an understatement. Its a deep psychological mystery about the power of motherhood, the intensity of teenage love, and the danger of perfection. It moved me to tears. - Reese Witherspoon

Extraordinary...Books like Little Fires Everywhere don't come along often." John Green

"Witty, wise, and tender. It's a marvel."  Paula Hawkins

From the bestselling author of Everything I Never Told You, a riveting novel that traces the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives.

In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules.

Enter Mia Warren an enigmatic artist and single mother who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community.

When old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town--and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides.  Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia's past. But her obsession will come at unexpected and devastating costs.

Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster.
