The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Admire Blazing Fall Foliage in Poughkeepsie


4. Insider’s Tip

Admire the illuminated Mid-Hudson Bridge from the Hudson Valley Boat Rides water taxi.  

Since June, Hudson Valley Boat Rides has been running a fourteen-passenger, high-speed water taxi between Poughkeepsie and the dock at Torches restaurant in Newburgh. At $30 round-trip and with rides running as late as midnight, it’s an unbeatable way to take in the Valley (go at night for an illuminated view of the Mid-Hudson Bridge). The unpublicized boats are rarely full; make a same-day reservation at 845-486-9500.
