Whether you're hitting the waves on Rhode Island, hiking through the picturesque Hudson Valley, or discovering the charm of North Fork's vineyards, we've curated the ultimate guide to local escapes. Here's to making the most of summer! 


Rhode Island Surfing

Discover the allure of Rhode Island's surf spots, where the laid-back shores of Narragansett call with their easy waves, and Block Island's rugged breaks promise thrilling rides. Whether you're a beginner looking to catch your first wave or a seasoned surfer seeking new challenges, Rhode Island offers an ideal blend of surf and summer vibes.

Insider Tip: While Narragansett Town Beach is popular, exploring lesser-known spots like Second Beach in Newport or Misquamicut Beach in Westerly can offer quieter waves and equally stunning views. Be sure to check local surf reports and conditions before heading out to make the most of your surfing adventure in Rhode Island.



Hudson Valley

Escape to the tranquil beauty of Hudson Valley this summer. Hike scenic trails, explore local farms, and wander through charming towns for a refreshing retreat close to the city. Enjoy a perfect blend of nature and small-town charm that feels worlds away from the urban hustle.

Insider Tip: Explore Breakneck Ridge Trail for a challenging and rewarding hike with panoramic views of the Hudson River. Start early to avoid crowds, and pack plenty of water and snacks for the journey.



North Fork of Long Island

Discover the hidden gem of North Fork, Long Island, known for its vineyards, beaches, and laid-back coastal atmosphere. Spend your weekend savoring local wines, relaxing on pristine beaches, and indulging in farm-to-table dining.

Insider Tip: Escape the crowds by exploring the quieter beaches like Truman's Beach. Visit local vineyards for tastings of award-winning wines in a picturesque setting.
