Fall is the perfect time to visit New York state—the leaves are changing and the weather is brisk.
Kick off your seven-night getaway with a day in Manhattan. Walk through Central Park, pay your respects at the World Trade Center Memorial, and achieve a panoramic view of the city atop the Empire State Building.
Next, march into West Point, the prestigious United States Military Academy founded in 1802. Don’t miss the Cadet Chapel, which houses the world’s largest church organ.
Arriving in Catskill, take in the rich mountainous landscape, which has inspired many artists, writers, and naturalists. Here, visit the homes of renowned painters Frederic Church and Thomas Cole.
In Albany, one of the settlements of the 13 original colonies, mosey through the Albany Institute of History & Art and the New York State Museum. Or stop off at the many antique stores, art galleries, cafes, and restaurants on Lark Street.
When you reach Kingston, swing by the Hudson River Maritime Museum for a history lesson. Other must-sees include the Old Dutch Church and the Senate House.
Hyde Park, your next stop, features the Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site and Springwood, a neo-Georgian house filled with memorabilia from the Roosevelt family, including a collection of the president’s paintings.
Your trip will conclude in New York City after visiting Sleepy Hollow, home to Kykuit—the 40-room Rockefeller Estate. Here, you’ll have the chance to take an exclusive tour of Lyndhurst, the Gothic Revival mansion, and Sunnyside, the former home of Washington Irving.
