Westchester County: the perfect getaway from the Big Apple

Westchester County along the Hudson Valley has long been a favorite getaway spot for families in the Big Apple. It doesn't matter if you are looking for a quiet weekend of solitude or an outdoor adventure break, your Westchester County vacation rental has got you covered. Spend your days exploring the elegant estates and their gardens, visit the nearby zoo and museums, or dive into the county's gastronomy. Whatever floats your adventure boat, there's something for everyone in the vast Bear Mountain and Hudson Highlands State Parks. Paddle up the river, hike up the trails or see everything on 2 wheels.

Westchester County is all about adventure

There are adventures aplenty in Bear Mountain State Park, a landscape of dramatic mountains just west of the Hudson River. You can take your pick from an endless number of activities, from walking the footpaths to cycling along the nature trails. It's a family-friendly spot, so feel free to bring the kids who can run amok while you kick back on the banks of the lake with a picnic. Don't forget winter, when flurries of snow provide lots more activities. Dust off the cross-country skis, wrap up warm and set off into the white wilderness, or practice your skills on the ice skating rink.

Westchester County has great views

Outdoorsy adventures not for you? Fear not. There's always something to do near your Westchester Country vacation rental. Up at Kykuit, an estate once owned by John D. Rockefeller, you can admire some jaw-dropping views down across the New York City skyline. For more stately homes, try elegant Lyndhurst, one of the country's finest Gothic Revival mansions. Alternatively, architecture buffs should head down to the impressive early 19th-century Old Croton Aqueduct in Dobbs Ferry. Looking for a night on the town? If you swing by the Capitol Theatre, you can hear the sounds of some of the hottest new upcoming acts.

Every season's the right time in Westchester

There's no right or wrong time to drop into one of the Westchester County vacation rental, with all 4 seasons offering something unique. The summertime high season sees the most number of travelers, particularly families from New York City who travel north to escape the stuffy urban sprawl. In spring, the agreeable climes and knocked-down rental rates make it an attractive time to visit. Alternatively, nab a rental in fall when the woodland's foliage bursts into myriad hues and there are fewer travelers to contend with. Winter brings blankets of snow which transform the landscape into a snowy wonderland.

Westchester County: a far cry from New York City

It might be under an hour north of New York City, but when it comes to wildlife, Westchester County is a far cry from the Big Apple. The woodlands, lakes and reservoirs near your Westchester County vacation rental are particularly good for birdwatching. Look up to the skies and you'll see eagles soaring over the national parks, along with other birds of prey like hawks and ospreys. Along the marshes, kingfishers swoop around and dive in after minnows and waterfowl reside here in abundance, while snapping turtles nonchalantly swim around in the shallow waters.
