We want to thank all the healthcare workers and first responders out there for going above and beyond in keeping us safe and healthy during this time. Their selfless dedication, compassion and resilience saves lives every day. No one deserves a relaxing weekend getaway more than they do! As a show of gratitude over the next few months, we’ve asked our lodging partners to give away FREE LOCAL VACATIONS to be taken in 2021 and beyond

Based on the nominations we receive, we’ll be giving away a few local weekend getaways within a day’s drive or train ride of NYC to those most deserving! Please tell us in 1000 words or less below about your healthcare worker or first responder friend, colleague or relative so we can honor and reward their impact on the frontlines!


Only 2 hours from NYC, in Saugerties, NY, south of the Catskill Mountains, this historic site overlooks the Esopus Creek where it meets the Hudson River.

Spend the day exploring the area! Within a short walk, you can rent kayaks, hike the gorgeous Falling Waters Preserve, go fishing or swimming. Plus, Saugerties, a quaint mill town, is just a short stroll uphill and there are plenty of farms and wineries in the area open for outdoor fun, tasting and pick-your-own fruit!

Recognized for its world-class cuisine, The Tavern at Diamond Mills sets the standard. To comply with the safest COVID-19 guidelines, they offer al fresco dining on the covered Terrace overlooking the gorgeous falls and the nightly sunsets. Their new Executive Chef, Marcos Castro, invites you to sample his exquisite farm-to-table cuisine, which highlights the best of the Hudson Valley.

When the day is over, spend the night at Diamond Mills Hotel. Awake to the sound of falling water in each of their 30 well-appointed guest rooms. Plush overstuffed duvets, fine natural cotton linens, and a rustic European design all ensure a clean, restful and relaxing stay your hero!
