One-Day (Outbound) Getaways
Just a 50 minute train ride from Manhattan to Peekskill, but a world away as you arrive at the Gateway to the Hudson Highlands. Board the ‘Evening Star’ in Riverfront Green Park for a 3-hour cruise through one of the most beautiful section of the Hudson River. The natural beauty and history of the area will captivate you as you cruise along aboard the canopy covered open deck of this former USCG buoy tender.
This unique and comfortable 30 passenger vessel will cruise north from Peekskill passing Dunderberg Mountain, Iona Island, the towering Bear Mountain Bridge, the sites of Revolutionary War forts and the impressive fortifications of West Point Military Academy. Beverages & snacks are available onboard. Pack a picnic lunch to bring along if you’d like or enjoy the many great restaurants in Peekskill when the boat returns.
Take the Hudson Line to Peekskill Station. Riverfront Green Park is within view of the Peekskill train station. Walk west from the station into the park, the boarding dock is adjacent to the playground and gazebo. Check here for an ITINERARY.
