Best Weekend Getaways From New York City: 4 Amazing Trips

Going on a holiday is fun and exciting, but a weekend getaway can do wonders, and New Yorkers know it better. When the weekend hits and is time to relax and unwind, New Yorkers definitely know how to play hard! So, if you are looking to say goodbye to the hustle and bustle and catch a break from The City That Never Sleeps but you don’t want to go too far, we’ve broken down four fantastic weekend getaways from New York City. You will love them, we promise!

  1. Bedford, New York
  2. Bedford, New York, is a friendly, cozy town situated just a one-hour ride from New York, New York. Martha Stewart, Glenn Close and Richard Gere choose this wonderland as their place to relax, unwind, spend some high-quality time and reconnect with nature. Rest your head at Richard Gere’s fabulous Bedford Post Inn, home to an eight-room luxury inn designed by Richard Gere’s wife, Carey Lowell and Tiffany Vassilakis, a fascinating yoga studio, and two distinct restaurants. You can relax in one of the Inn’s yoga workshop, unwind in your room in front of the fireplace or enjoy a culinary experience at the Inn’s restaurants: The Barn – a warm and welcoming restaurant that offers innovative culinary experience using only locally sourced organic ingredients, or Farmhouse, an elegant restaurant that serves classic American cuisine.

  3. The Catskills, New York
  4. If you love nature, coffee, nicely-designed things and delicious food, and you appreciate the simple things in life, the Catskills is the place to be. Defined by modern inns, charming towns, crystal clear waters, lush forests and modern restaurants, the Hudson Valley inspires creative and fresh energy. If you want to return to the simple pleasures of the heart, choose to rest your head at The Spruceton Inn in Westkill where a cozy bed, the quiet sounds of the country, and a bonfire are waiting for you. If you would love to enjoy a dinner with a view, then the Scribner’s Catskill Lodge is the place you will surely love.

  5. Newport, Rhode Island
  6. Say goodbye to the city’s hustle and bustle but prepare yourself for activities you would typically enjoy in a shore town. Newport is home to wonderful Gilded Age mansions and some amazing places to stay, where you can rejuvenate with the most relaxing spa treatments, go on romantic walks, and indulge yourself in delicious culinary experiences. Rest your head at the Castle Hill Inn or The Ocean House – both offer top-notch service and gorgeous dinning experiences.

  7. Shelter Island, New York
  8. Shelter Island, New York, is the perfect place to be for the overly stressed New Yorker. This fabulous island offers you everything a busy weekday doesn’t, from fascinating waterfront bed and breakfast to relaxing dinner spots. Escape from the ordinary and enjoy a sunset dinner at the Sunset Beach. Rest your head at The Chequit, a restored 19-th century, 37 rooms inn, where the interiors are painted in calming pink and grey pastels and accessorized with Native American patterned rugs. Relax, sit by the fire, or listen to the breeze from the veranda.
