Dear EscapeMakers — Wow, it feels like summer!
And speaking of summer, we hope you join us for our:
DUTCHESS FARMS & WINERIES WEEKEND
(2.5 HOURS VIA METRO-NORTH RAILROAD FROM GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL)
Saturday, June 9 & Sunday, June 10th
NEW THIS YEAR! Take Metro-North Railroad to Dutchess County’s Wassaic Station and we’ll transport you to various farms and wineries – no car needed! Select your own Dutchess farm fresh stops via our hop on/off looper shuttles! The shuttles will run regularly on both Saturday, June 9th and Sunday, June 10th so you can plan your own day trip or weekend itinerary!
Take in the warm breeze of early June while visiting the charming Village of Millerton. Explore McEnroe Organic Farm, its garden and cider bar; sample award-winning wines at Millbrook Vineyards & Winery or Cascade Mountain Winery; tap into sweet samples and learn about maple syrup-making at Soukup Farms; or sign up for an animal sanctuary tour at Lucky Orphan’s Horse Rescue.
Depending on how you structure your day, you’ll be able to visit all locations. Plus, we also have overnight packages based on availability. Stay overnight at a quintessential Hudson Valley inn and ride the looper both days! This is a great way to get out of the city for a day trip or a memorable weekend getaway while supporting local hard working farmers, winemakers and artisanal producers.
Just reserve your shuttle space and then purchase your round-trip train ticket and any Metro-North full-service ticket vending machine or ticket window prior to the trip!
