One of the best weekends this fall was our trip upstate to Warwick, NY. We rented a car, drove a few hours, and reached the ultimate relaxing weekend getaway. I wanted to give you all a full look into our jam packed weekend, and share all of the fun things that we did in Warwick!
Where to Stay:
We stayed at the cutest bed + breakfast ever called the Warwick Valley Bed and Breakfast. Built in the early 1900’s, this completely restored Colonial Revival home in the Hudson Valley retains the charm, grace and architectural splendor of an era past. Loretta, the owner, is the sweetest person ever and makes sure that your stay is the absolute best. She makes an amazing fresh breakfast each morning and all of the rooms have a sweet charm to them.
Where to Eat:
Tim and I are very good at eating our way through a vacation spot, and Warwick didn’t disappoint. Here are the spots we went to and some I have on my list for next time!
Bellvale Farms Creamery- DUH. Ice cream that’s won awards? Sign. me. up. This spot was amazing! It had such a long line but moved pretty quickly.. and it overlooked the prettiest mountains and valley.
Cafe a la mode- Checking out the local cafe/coffee shop is a must for me! This spot had over 15 types of coffee and it had such a small town home-y vibe… we loved it.
Eddie’s Roadhouse- We came here on our first night since we arrived around 9p, and it was definitely hopping! They have classic American gastropub food and a lot of the locals hangout here.
Fratello- Wood-fired pizzas in a cozy farmhouse that you don’t want to miss! Definitely on our list for next time.
Iron Forge Inn- A historic farmhouse that has romantic vibes and an American cuisine. They also have a burger bar downstairs!
Silvio’s Villa Ristorante- Another Italian gem that has garden seating + fireplaces.
What to do:
We really did allthethings in less than 48 hours, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. From wineries to farms to cute shopping, we were not bored. We went during the height of fall so it was perfect to explore and see all of the leaves changing. Some of our faves were:
Apple Dave’s Distillery- They had the prettiest view, live music, and apple/pumpkin picking. You could walk around the lake too, which was so nice.
Shawangunk Wine Trail- We didn’t have time to do the whole thing, but there are 7-8 wineries that you can visit!
Storm King Art Center- About 25 min from Warwick, we stopped here on Sunday to see the gorgeous grounds and art that’s placed throughout. Definitely go early when they open to get the best parking options.
Sugarloaf Mountain- Beautiful hiking trails that go on for days.
Warwick Valley Winery + Distillery- A fun + quaint wine tasting spot.
Have any of you done a weekend upstate? Let me know your favorite spots.. I’m already planning for next year 🙂
