Vineyards with Morning Dew

New York’s Finger Lakes region has been described by Wine Spectator as the wine and culinary epicenter of New York. On a recent visit there I discovered why; the Finger Lakes beats Napa and Sonoma hands down and literally knocked my sox off with its vineyards, history, culture, gardens, gorgeous lakes, charming accommodations, unique shops and great restaurants.

Hudson River Valley – Verrazzano to Tappan Zee

Little red lighthouse-1

Cruise the Hudson River Valley from its New York City entrance to Troy, NY to feel the excitement Henry Hudson’s crew must have felt when discovering this amazing display of natural beauty in 1609. It has changed, to be sure. While nature is hard to beat, some of man’s work, bridges, lighthouses and castles have heightened a traveler’s enjoyment of this unique terrain especially when touring by boat.
