One-Day (Outbound) Getaways
Getaway and enjoy a day, taking in beautiful Hudson River views and a historic walk along the Old Croton Aqueduct, connecting the Rivertowns of Hastings-on-Hudson, Dobbs Ferry and Irvington. The Aqueduct forms a level, flat and shaded walking path behind the homes of this pleasant residential area along the Hudson River, giving one the sense of going back to the time of unpaved roads and horse-powered transportation.
You can start your walk in any of the three Rivertowns and return by Metro-North from any of the villages, or stop in Yonkers on your way up or back to take in its new waterfront attractions and restaurants. Each village offers beautiful Hudson River views, including the breathtaking Palisades cliffs, as well as fine and casual dining; shops for arts, crafts and clothing; bike rentals; and spas. On weekends, you'll find farmers markets, local festivals and events, as well as evening entertainment.
