“If you’re up in Beacon to do some hiking, fuel up before all that nature at Beacon Bagel. It’s not going to compete with the city’s best, but considering you’re 60 miles outside of NYC, it’s a pretty good bet for an egg and cheese sandwich.”

“There’s one main street in Cold Spring - filled with charming cafes, antique shops, and design stores that look like they belong in a much bigger city - and after you walk the entirety of it, you’re going to want some ice cream. Get it at Moo Moo’s, then walk across the street to the park on the river for an extremely scenic ice cream experience.”
