The Leaves Are Falling

Oct 2, 2012   //   by sleveene   //   Uncategorized  //  No Comments

The wonderful season of fall is finally here.  However, it is still 85 degrees at our house in South Florida!  Luckily, Global Itineraries just had the chance to visit family and friends in Kingston, New York over the weekend.  Did you know that Kingston was the first capital of NY before it moved to Albany?  There are many beautiful Victorian homes still standing in town and there are historic downtown and waterfront districts to walk around while you’re there.  We were lucky to have some time to stop by Forsyth Park & Nature Center to see a bevy of cute animals for free.  Eating and drinking highlights of our trip included SkyTop Steakhouse, Ship to Shore Restaurant, Keegan Ales, Stockade Tavern and La Roma Pizza (down the road from a cool old school roller rink called Wood’n Wheel).  We also drove up to ski mecca Hunter Mountain for their annual Oktoberfest Celebration.  Even though it’s a bit early in the season, we were not disappointed by the wonderful fall foliage already on display around the mountain.  Finally, we walked across the relatively new Walkway Over the Hudson that offered stunning views of the Hudson River.  You can enter the walkway from the Highland side or the Poughkeepsie side, and there are great views of the Mid-Hudson Bridge.

We hope that you enjoy some of the pictures from our trip, and please tell us where you are watching the leaves turn this year!

On Hunter Mountain, the leaves were changing…

…and the beer was flowing!
