New York City
What can the great New York City lack in terms of lodging, dining and entertainment? Perhaps its urban nature is the only thing that some New Yorkers find unsatisfactory and overwhelming. As scenic as Central Park is, it is no Hudson Valley. If you are a New York City resident that is in need of a breath of smog-free air and historic site preservation, why not take a trip on the Metro-North to upstate New York. Cortlandt Manor, NY not only has superb restaurants and inns, but as one of six historic sites in the Historic Hudson Valley, the town of Cortlandt also prides itself on acres of park and farmland. Chicory Meadow Farms and the Hudson National Golf Course are two such leisure sites that New York City simply isn't conducive to.
