Bear Mountain Cruise: The Perfect Weekend Getaway

This post was originally published on Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises' blog. The idea of taking a cruise along the Hudson River, then getting off the boat to hike around Bear Mountain State Park, hoisting a stein for Oktoberfest, and enjoying weekend downtime outside NYC all sound like great autumn activities to us!

Hessian Lake is a sprawling, 45-acre crystal blue lake located at the the foot of Bear Mountain.

Fall is finally here! As the crisp air blows in and the leaves begin to change to stunning shades of amber and gold, Bear Mountain becomes the ideal destination for a scenic weekend escape. Throughout September and October, Circle Line vessels will be winding their way up the Hudson as you absorb the unrivaled views of The Palisades in all of their natural beauty. Take the perfect snapshot of radiant fall foliage, or enjoy a good conversation with friends and family. Whatever you desire, Circle Line’s Bear Mountain Cruises are the best way to relax this fall.

Once you arrive at historic Bear Mountain, you will have free reign over 5,000 acres of pure natural wonders. If touring by bike suits your fancy, Circle line has partnered with Bike and Roll NYC to provide high quality Trek bikes for Bear Mountain’s scenic paths and challenging hills.

In addition, your cruise includes free admission to Bear Mountains’ annual Oktoberfest. This fall, Bear Mountain will come alive with authentic German festivities. With delectable Deutschland cuisine, your favorite ice-cold German beverages, and top-notch German music performed by the likes of the Alex Meixner Band, you won’t want to miss this celebration!
