The Weekend Guide : Cold Spring, Hudson Valley

6.06.2012


One of my favorite things to do, especially in the summer, is take short weekend jaunts to cool, new places. Over the Memorial weekend I hopped on a train bound for Cold Springs in the majestic Hudson Valley. It's worth the trip if just to get to the completely fantastic Cold Spring Apothecary on Main St. The shop is impeccably designed from the vintagey-organic interior right down to every piece of packaging for its line of hair, skin and body treatments, candles, soaps, and soothing fragrances. The products are hand-made right in the store with 100% natural ingredients and I do not exaggerate when I say this store is the best discovery I've made all year, I just looove this place and the merchandise. Shopping works up an appetite and Cathryn's Tuscan Grill did not disappoint with a too-delicious-for-words artichoke ravioli special. There's also Hudson Hil's, a cute French cafe across the street from Cathryn's that's good for sandwiches or desserts. After browsing Cold Spring's numerous antique shops end the day at The Pig Hill Inn and you've had yourself a mighty fine weekend.

COLD SPRING, I ADORE YOU! A great day trip for all New Yorkers. If you're not from New York, you should still make it a point to check it out. And I cannot recommend Cold Spring Apothecary enough! This is a true gem, the products are wonderful and the staff is beyond helpful. GO THERE! And the food is delicious - must try Cathryn's and Hudson Hil's Cafe.

Hudson Valley rocks!
