With high summer quickly transforming into crisp autumn in the Hudson Valley, residents and visitors alike are looking for Covid-safe ways to continue enjoying the best of what the region has to offer. And Nyack, with its diverse shopping, dining, and recreation set against a backdrop of the gorgeous Hudson River, is welcoming them with open arms.


Nyack’s distinctive setting—a cool, walkable village that’s an easy 19-minute drive from New York City—makes it the perfect destination for a day trip or weekend stay alike. "Many people want relief from the constraints of city life, but at the same time want the lifestyle amenities normally offered by a large city: unique shops, great restaurants, recreation, and entertainment," says Maria Luisa Whittingham, owner of Maria Luisa boutique and co-founder of Nyack Merchants United.

The cooler temperatures and the brilliant fall foliage beg for all kinds of autumn activities, and in Nyack you can take your pick.



Bike around the village, then head over to the new Bridge Path, which has six different overlooks boasting panoramic views of the Hudson. Stroll down Main Street and Broadway, and pick up a cozy sweater or a gift for a friend at one of the many independent retail shops. Discover a new favorite restaurant, enjoy live music and theater, and explore the river with a private boat tour.

There’s plenty of purveyors to satisfy any craving you might have. Over the past 18 months, Nyack has welcomed over two dozen new shops and eateries. And if you’re in town this month, be sure to catch Nyack’s Famous Street Fair, the village’s annual open-air celebration of arts and crafts with over 200 exhibitors from five states.
