Do you want to take a mini vacation but you don’t want to travel too far? Have you ever thought of taking a cruise? This cruise will take you on a trip up the Hudson River with some great excursions along the way.
The Hudson River was an amazing piece of America’s puzzle. It led to the development of New York State and is 315 miles of beautiful scenic views. American Cruise Lines is offering seven-day cruises in October to not only explore the Hudson River but see it with the beautiful foliage. It starts and ends in New York City.
According to their website, “Surrounded by the Catskill Mountains on the western shore and the Taconic and Berkshire Hills to the east, the Hudson River is rich in both history and beauty. The cities and towns along the river date back to Dutch and English rule and feature some of the most magnificent architecture in America. Our expert guides will lead you through these grand and historic sites including the Vanderbilt Mansion, the home of Franklin D. Roosevelt, and the Olana State Historic Site, home to one of the most influential Hudson River School Painters, Frederic Church. At West Point Military Academy, walk the hallowed grounds traversed by some of the nation’s greatest generals, and later visit the riverside town of Sleepy Hollow made famous by the great American writer Washington Irving.”
The boat’s capacity is 170 people with 90 rooms so it’s a lot smaller than the international cruise ships. They have dates available from September 24- October 8 and prices range depending on the boat you choose and the room you decide on.
