Ok, not in Beacon, but why just stay in Beacon? This place is a great local, artisanal farm that serves delicious brunches on Saturdays and Sundays from 10-2, as well as fresh vegetables in their barn. LOVE this place. Sit outside along the creek

Great modern German gastro-pub overlooking an apple orchard. Nice outdoor seating, with indoor seating reminiscent of a modern ski lodge. Love this place. A little hard to find but worth it!

Drinks & Nightlife

It is an old diner converted into a bar and music venue, serving delicious japanese comfort food (ramen, curry, dumplings, etc). Feels like an old dive bar in SF or a midwestern basement. In a good way. Definitely the place to go if you are staying out late and want to hang with twenty somethings

Dogwood is definitely the most local bar to our house, and definitely is our go to if we aren't at Quinn's. They serve food and live music. It is also WALKABLE from my house. All good things. Say hi to George

Parks & Nature

I hike this trail weekly. Best part of living where we are. You can step out my front door and start your hike up the mountain! Just head up Wolcott Avenue and once you reach the top, you will see a sign for the Mt. Beacon park and the start of the hiking trail. You don't have to go all the way to the fire tower; you can have a beautiful view once you reach the summit. But if you hike another 20 minutes or so, you have even a better view and sometimes can see Manhattan's skyline. So close, yet so far

This is a nice leisurely nature walk loop, which takes you along the edge of the peninsula that juts out into the Hudson River. You can explore an abandoned factory, check out an eagle viewing vista, see ruins of the defunct Dennings Point Brick factory, and explore the beaches on the river.

Beautiful trail to a hidden waterfall. Only 6 parking spaces so always quiet and secluded. My swimming oasis on hot days

Beautiful park above New Paltz with hiking trails in and around the big lake, as well as a 3 mile trail to the smaller Lake Awosting which offers some of the clearest water to swim in around. In July and August you can pick wild blueberries on your hike
