You are less than 2 miles from the Peekskill train station and waterfront. This metro north stop is a quick hour from Grand Central Terminal, boasting some incredible views for photographers and some deliciously unique beers at the famous Peekskill Brewery just steps away from the train. Don't miss out on the sweet treats at Homestyle bakery. Search the web for Go Peekskill for info on the shuttle service that connects the waterfront & downtown area. There is also a new "Pedal Peekskill" shop for bike rentals and lovely trails along the water.
You are 1 mile away from the downtown strip. There is a farmers market on Saturdays and usually several restaurants offering live music over the weekend. If the weather is nice, there's lots of outside seating. Birdsall and The Quiet Man have the best outside scene. The Hudson Room and Iron Vine win for inside atmosphere and food. There are plenty of little antique and coffee shops too to explore.
You are visiting a hiker's paradise! Countless trail heads span the Bear Mountain area, including the popular Breakneck Ridge for experienced hikers. Additionally, the Blue Mountain Reserve offers an 1,800-acre site with 22 miles of hiking trails spread across hills and valleys. The easiest trails here are the Dickey Brook and Boundary Trail. A climb on a clear day at Mt. Spitzenburg gives way to sweeping views of the Hudson River all the way to New York City. The trailheads and park entrance is about a 1.5 mile, twenty minute walk through town from the Peekskill train station. The Blue Mountain sportsman center is also a 10 minute drive from the house if you're interested in trap and skeet. There is also Wilken's Fruit and Fir Farm nearby, which is great for apple and pumpkin picking.
The 20 minute drive to West Point is beautifully scenic, especially in the fall foliage. Enjoy some golf on their public course or catch a football game. (schedule online) Go Army!
