February I've done some quick little trips:
Chappaqua- home of our former president and current secretary of state.
It is a small quaint town in Westchester county. Very woodsy with a little town to shop in and a few cute restaurants. Neighboring Mt Kisko as well has shops and movie theater and more eateries.
A lovely place to visit.
These little towns, nestled next to the Palisades and the river are often picturesque.
Nyack is a cute little town just north of NYC. As you ride the Palisades Highway north, you will hit Bear Mountain, just 45 minutes from the George Washington Bridge. This is a beautiful park and mountain area to visit!
Also, a nice little getaway weekend location.
Enjoy the short trips along with the longer ones!
