The weather is changing and the scarves and mittens have come out of hibernation. So when it’s too cold to frolic through orchards or hike through the hills and valleys, where should our much needed winter weekend getaways be spent? We’ve got lots of great ideas for fun and cozy trips that will keep you out of the cold!
Hudson Valley Culinary Crawl:
The Hudson Valley is known for its abundance of delicious food. Whether we’re talking fine dining, casual brew pubs, road-side bbq, farm fresh shops and restaurants, retro diners, cozy coffee shops, etc., dining in Dutchess county offers an unlimited road map for delicious eats. Specifically looking to crawl your way across the local joints supporting the local farmers and producers? Hop from Farm Fresh place to place for some warm, home-cooked goodness this winter!
Catskills Artistanal Beverage Trail:
The Catskills are a perfect mountain retreat when the snow is falling and the temperatures are down. Cozy up in an inn or cabin by the fire and keep your activities indoors via the Artisanal Beverage Trail of Sullivan Catskills. Most locations — distilleries, breweries, wineries, etc. — feature daily tastings and tours, which highlight an educational look into just how these craft beverages are concocted.
Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Trail:
Winter is a perfect time to travel leisurely along one of the many craft beer trails the Northeast region has to offer. The Finger Lakes Beer Trail, New York State’s Premier Craft Beer Destination, has dozens of tastes and locations for you to check out. Whether you’re looking for beers from breweries named New York State’s “Best Craft Brewery” for 2014, exciting events like the Heritage Village Craft Beverage Expo, Hot Glass Cool Brew, and the Finger Lakes Beer Festival, or live music, great food, and other fun ways to enjoy delicious libations, Craft Your Adventure has you covered.
