Best Weekend Getaways from NYC

When the subway is too crowded and 100 degrees are melting down the sidewalks, there is nothing like a summer weekend getaway from NYC. Because at times like this, one day is just not enough, right? So start your New York City escape plan this weekend, and get a fresh look at the city when you come back.

There are many beautiful places to visit, just a short drive from NYC. Here is a selection of our favorite ones:

BEACON, NY: Beacon is gaining more and more popularity and recognition as one of the true gems of Hudson Valley. This town preserves authentic Americana charm, with Victorian architecture, great art and culture, surrounded by the green, lovely and calm air of the town. Visit the Dia:Beacon for a glance at great Pop-Art collection, featuring artists such as Andy Warhol, Louise Bourgeois and Richard Serra.

BETHEL, NY: For a trip down memory lane (or a peek at a different era), visit Bethel, the host of the legendary Woodstock festival. The town is now home to a beautiful museum and cultural institute, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, located in the original Woodstock site, depicting the festival and the 60’s history and hosting ongoing cultural and musical events.

MILFORD, PA: For those of you who are looking for a tranquilizing getaway in nature, but don’t want to go as far as hiking. This lovely town is located in the northeastern section of the Poconos, provides you an easy access to the beautiful landscapes of the natural areas. The astonishing Bushkill Falls, known as “The Niagara of Pennsylvania”, will make your trip beautiful, wet, and worthwhile.
