A stop at the Culinary Institute of America – the CIA for foodies, is essential when travelling Upstate; with four different student-run restaurants where the young creatives work hard for your taste buds’ delight, you couldn’t go wrong if you tried. Except… we did! Geared up for some of their famous apple pie after a late lunch, we rushed into the Apple Pie Bakery Café only to discover they were already sold out!

You can walk the 357-mile Long Path, a hiking trail that begins in New York City, at the West 175th Street subway station near the George Washington Bridge and ends at Altamont, in Albany County, or take the short walk from the parking lot down to the Falls’ base for some wonderfully refreshing spray.
Part of the Mine Kill State Park which offers an array of activities and hiking trails, including a 5-mile segment of the Long Path.

You can spend hours or days in this bibliophile’s heaven. A tiny village of 500 residents and enough books to last you a few lifetimes. Our stop was at Liberty Rock Books, a massive space with stacks of treasures; impossible to leave empty-handed.
Where every room is a concept and every concept is unique.

But someone took us away from all that, and then we worked for him. His name was Charlie”. I was Jill (and sometimes, I switched to Kelly).
