    I am hoping to see NYS in the fall...when would be best to travel

    I was thinking end of Sept/beg of Oct...would that be the best time?

    Thanks guys

  2. That would be a great time, the leaves will be changing and it will be beautiful! Where in NY are you planning to go? There are so many great places to hike and camp. The weather at this time is usually still pretty mild also. Can be in the 60-70 degree range during the day and of course cooler at night.

    Let me know where you are planning to travel and maybe I can make some recommendations of places to go!

    Thanks thats very kind of you...

    Ive a friend in the Highland/Poughkeepsie area...do you know it...if so whats it like

    and another who lives on the Masachussetes(sp) border...

    I was thinking of renting a log cabin somewhere between the two if I can hire a car.....any ideas...would love to see the catskill mounts but not sure how far that would be from Poughkeepsie...

    Thanks girl!!
  4. I live in Poughkeepsie! It is a nice area, about 90 minutes from NYC by train or car. The Catskills are about 1 hour. There is great hiking over in New Paltz which is just 20 minutes or less from Highland. There is so much to do in this area. Being here in the fall is great for visiting the farms, getting pumpkins, apples etc! There are mansions you could tour along the river, such as Vanderbilt or Roosevelt. We camp up in the Catskills. I really love it up there. I am not sure about a log cabin, but a good idea for rentals might be to check out Craigslist.com on the internet/Hudson Valley. People post vacation rentals and house swaps all the time.

    Let me know if you need more info!

    Hey you live there!!!

    Do you think I could get a train from JFK Airport to Poughkeepsie and then maybe hire a car from there?

    I so wanna go to the Catskills......thanks so much for your help!!!

  6. You van take the Metro North train right into Poughkeepsie. I am not sure if you can take it directly from JFK, I don't think so, but I will check with my husband (he is a pilot and in and out of JFK and LGA all the time). The website for the train is http://www.mta.info There are places to rent cars, and you could get one from Enterprise car rental, they will deliver the car to you!

    Hit Baccus....(not sure of the spelling...) in New Paltz. You should also check out Warwick...the winery's...this time of year there is usually music of some kind going on...mostly folk and bluegrass. And Sugar Loaf is a neat little hidden spot.
