Cold Spring, New York
Cold Spring is a quaint town in the mountains along the Hudson River. The town itself it cute but small, filled with antique shops and restaurants. There’s also a lot of hiking trails nearby making it a great spot for nature lovers and for those who just want to chillax. You only need a few days here to see it all but, just like a lot of the towns we visited in the Hudson Valley, it’s definitely worth the trip.
How to get to Cold Spring
Cold Spring is about a 2 hour drive from NYC, but you could also take the Metro North to Cold Spring Station which makes is very easily accessible. We liked having the car because there were a lot of things to do nearby that weren’t in walking distance, but you can definitely come here by train and have a great time.
