What are some reachable destinations if one were to rent a car or hop on the train?

Help the community by answering this question:


Fire Island would be a fun place to visit during summer - you already go advice on the Hamptons and Jersey Shore beaches. Brighton Beach could be a cultural exploration - lots of Russian Restaraints along the beach and beautiful sunsets...
Also Bear Mountain if you like hiking...In the winter - skiing trips to Hunter Mountain and Vermont.
Newport, Rhode Island is a beautiful and fun place to visit

You can get to Brandywine Valley in PA in under 2hrs from NYC via Amtrak or renting a car. Great wine tasting tours, horseback riding & they also have a great museum documenting the battle between George Washington’s troops and the redcoats in 1777. You would never imagine that you're so close to home!

Looking forward,

There are so many terrific areas to visit upstate that would make for a great weekend getaway. Woodstock and many of the surrounding areas come to mind. The Hyde Park/Rhinebeck has a lot to offer. New Hope, PA is a favorite getaway of mine. So is Mystic, Conn. So many choices!

Westchester County and the upper Hudson Valley have so many things to do. We have an abundance of hiking/biking trails, parks, shopping, etc. Restaurant week is starting in November for the entire Hudson Valley as well! Check out my page on Facebook called Westchester County Events & Activities and scroll through for tons of ideas.
