Start the season on a high note with the behemoth of NYC cruises. This particular journey takes passengers up the Hudson River to Bear Mountain State Park, and the best part of all is that once the cruise docks, you'll be able to enjoy the festivities of Onboard Oktoberfest. Kiddies will love a ride on the carousel and a quick trip to the local petting zoo.
What better way to welcome autumn than with beautiful hues of red, gold and orange? Make the most of the New York scenery with a few fall foliage cruises. Kiddies—and adults—will love photo ops amongst the trees while sporting cozy cardigans. (We highly suggest bringing a few apple cider-inspired treats along for the ride, too.)
Why not catch Mother Nature in all her glory with falling leaves, crisp breeze and bright skies from a different vantage point? These fall foliage cruises for kids and families up the ante on a favorite seasonal activity.
We'll see you on board (and save you some cider, too).
