For the very best (and biggest!) sandwiches around, go to Rossi's. You will likely find a line (even in the current climate) of locals! You won't be disappointed.

Not only does Lolita's have great wood-fired pizzas, the kale salad is the best we've ever had. When your teenaged boy asks for the salad before he asks for pizza or a soda, you know it's something special! Don't miss it.

The tour around Lake Minnewaska is not only very beautiful, but it’s also quite manageable at 1.7 miles. Directly off the main parking lot in Minnewaska State Park, the well attended, but not overcrowded trails are open, airy and provide a moment of scenic bliss. http://nysparks.com/parks/127/details.aspx

The reward for a relatively brief walk in a portion of the Minnewaska Park, near Wawarsing is a stunning 90 foot waterfall flowing over a sheer cliff face into a pristine swimming hole. Above the fall is a pool from which there are marvelous views of the Stony Creek and Roundout Valleys, into Sullivan County. https://parks.ny.gov/parks/127/details.aspx http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stony_Kill_Falls

Porady dla podróżnych

Stroll the Walkway Over the Hudson!

The entrance is on Washington Street (take the stairs up) and you may stroll in either direction. Each end of the walkway has an information booth and public restrooms. You can pick up local guides here detailing area events (farmer's markets, festivals, apple-picking) and local businesses. The Walkway is flanked by a paved former rail-trail on either end as well; and you can choose to walk, run, or bike the distance (8 miles in one direction and 13 in the other). Whatever you choose, don't miss the incredible views from the middle of the Walkway! It is quite spectacular.
