Vacation for a Day? Go to Cold Spring, NY

When my family asked me what I wanted to do for Mother’s Day, without hesitation I said let’s go to Cold Spring, NY. Perhaps my favorite town in the New York area, Cold Spring exudes Main Street charm, with antique stores and quirky mom and pop shops dotting the center of town one after the next. Located in Putnam County about 50 miles north of Manhattan, it is one of the more stunning towns around: set on the Hudson River, with Storm King mountain looming in the distance, the views in this quaint little town are surprisingly dramatic, making it the perfect day trip place to escape and feel like you’re “on vacation”.
