Today, we will enjoy the magnificent fall foliage as we cruise out of New York's harbor and up the Hudson River to Bear Mountain State Park, where we can visit the zoo, explore over 50 hiking and biking trails, and even order a picnic lunch ahead of time, so it will be ready when we board the boat. Along the cruise, we will be able to see Grant's Tomb, the Little Red Lighthouse, the George Washington Bridge, and much more! Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations.

This small lighthouse almost seems to be hiding under the George Washington Bridge in Manhattan. It was the focus of a beloved children's book in the 1940s called "The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge."
Le Corbusier, a famous Swiss-French architect of the 20th century, once said of the George Washington Bridge that it was "the most beautiful bridge in the world." The bridge connects the borough of Manhattan with the Palisades of New Jersey.
This 5,000-plus-acre park not far outside New York City is a favorite spot for skiers and hikers in the greater New York and northern New Jersey areas. Bear Mountain itself is a 1,200-foot-tall peak that overlooks the Hudson River.
