Fall Foliage Tour from NYC
Are you looking for an outing during your NYC trip? You do not want to miss our Fall Foliage trip up the Palisades up to West Point. This trip will be one of the highlights of your trip.
The Hudson River Valley and Palisades
Fall foliage in the Hudson Valley is one of nature’s treasures. Head over the majestic George Washington Bridge, dubbed “the most beautiful bridge in the world” by the architect Le Corbusier. Our journey begins in earnest on the Palisades Parkway, skirting the 550-foot-high Palisades along the Hudson River. Travel through luxuriant foliage suddenly awash in yellows, oranges, and reds. Take a break at the Lookout Inn, the highest point along the Palisades. Since 1937, this refreshment stand has greeted visitors with spectacular views across Westchester County to Long Island Sound. Our trek continues past Bear Mountain, once site of the premier ski jump in the U.S. Then, we skirt past the Bear Mountain Bridge, the first bridge across the Hudson between New York and Albany. Just past the site of the Revolutionary War Battle of Fort Montgomery, we head into West Point. America’s oldest military academy was the training ground for Ulysses S. Grant, Robert E. Lee, John Pershing, Omar Bradley, Douglas MacArthur, and Dwight Eisenhower. Take a break for a light meal in the scenic town of West Point, then we’ll head back to the city past miles of rolling hills blanketed by colorful maples, aspens, oaks, dogwoods, hickories and birches.
