If you're into brews, look no further. Not only do they do tours and free tasting, but if you come on the right night, they may even have a themed trivia with freshly made donuts.

German food that will make you want to put on the dirndl and dance the Schuhplattler. Weekends will have a wait for a table, but eating here is more than worth it.

Love chocolate? This INCREDIBLE shop has some lavish holiday treats. Rice crispies, pretzels, oreos, strawberries, and everything you could possibly dream of is here - dipped in milk or dark chocolate. I have introduced you to a slice of heaven - you're welcome.

NYC Adventure

First time on the east coast? NYC is a great place to visit, but the Hudson Valley is definitely the place to stay! If you're a long-time guest and looking for a day trip - here you are. It's a 1.5 hour drive. I can't stress this enough, you should avoid driving into NYC at all costs. The closest train station to ride down is in Poughkeepsie (POU) and it'll be a nice ride. If you haven't gone into the city, it's worth planning a nice full day.
