day trip from NYC

07/15/2012 § 1 Comment

We’ve been so busy to take vacation in maybe a bit over 2 years now… and for now local weekend and day trips are essential to getting grounded and re-energized.  I’ve been looking into day trips around NYC where dogs are allowed – and found this local farm in NJ.  The place is called Alstede Farms, in Chester, NJ.

 

 

We went for a Satruday day trip – it’s not too far away –  only 1.5 hrs by car.  BUT, if you live in Brooklyn like us, you will have to either go through Manhattan via Holland Tunnel, or go around the longer distance via Veranzano Bridge.  I recommend the latter.  We chose Holland Tunnel, and it was a buzz kill and long traffic jam.  Other than that – it was PERFECT.  Next time we go, we take the bridge.
