Fall is one of the prettiest times of the year in the tri-state area. The colors on the trees are just amazing. If you want to get a closer look at the foliage, all you have to do is hop on a boat.
Don’t blink. If you do you just might miss the sea of reds, yellows, and oranges about to wash over city trees. As it turns out, the best way to savor the colors of fall is by boat.
Classic Harbor Line’s fall foliage voyage sails past the Upper West Side, Palisades Park, and the George Washington Bridge and heads to Tarrytown.
For under $100, the cruise includes brunch on a 1920s style yacht.
The tours continue well into the colder months.
