1. NYC: Bear Mountain Fall Foliage Cruise Skip-The-Box-Office

Cruise up the Hudson River to Bear Mountain in all its autumn glory. This cruise takes you to Bear Mountain State Park at just the right time when those beautiful bursts of fall leaves start to appear along the Hudson. But this is much more than a fall foliage cruise. Stop at Bear Mountain to indulge in some glorious nature. Hop off the boat there, where for 2 hours, you can enjoy the park’s 50+ hiking and biking trails, paddle around the lake,  and take in the general splendor of nature and fall weather. You will also enjoy the autumnal sights with some light narration from your onboard guide, all the while enjoying the "Onboard Oktoberfest" with German food and beer specials plus some good ol’ oom-pah music. Sample food and drink offerings include: • German Feast Plate with bratwurst, sauerkraut, and German potato salad • Prop & Peller Real Bavarian Pretzels • Traditional pork schnitzel • Classic concessions items (hot dogs, chips, candy, etc.) • Draft and bucket specials on all Warsteiner beers Landmarks visible on the cruise include: • Riverside Church • Grant's Tomb • The Little Red Lighthouse • George Washington Bridge • Hudson Valley foliage • Bear Mountain State Park

Everything excellent. There was no autumn foliage, however. My friends and family members were disappointed, but it was no one's fault, nature was just taking her time dressing up!
