If you're in the NY Hudson River Valley or the Tri-state area this weekend, you're in luck. Our beautiful valley is dressed in the dazzling colors of peak Fall foliage and the weather is very fine. Lots to do, so plan your itinerary. It's also peak time to celebrate the wonderful variety of fine crafts produced in our valley.
Saturday only, please take a drive to Dover Plains, NY to the beautiful Madava Farms and partake in the luscious-ness of the Crown Maple Fall Festival. You'll be able to purchase some lovely teas and accessories from Jules and Olya of Beau Tea Studio. Check out the line up and vendors, and try not to drool.
