Join us as we help you plan your perfect weekend getaway from New York City to Kingston, NY.

The perfect place for a Kingston spa day.

If you’re trying to get away from the loud and busy life of NYC, there is no better way to start your getaway than by giving your mind and body the self-care you deserve. So what better way to relax than with a full spa experience, at Kingston’s Zephyr Float. With this experience you’re not just getting an amazing couple’s massage or the healing power of hot stone treatments, you can have one of the most relaxing experiences around, floatation therapy. Now I know what you’re asking, what’s floatation therapy? These Isolation tanks have you floating in salt water, heated to body temperature, so you can focus on only relaxation. An hour inside a float tank can do more than help you relax, it’s also great at helping people be more creative and is even used to help sports injuries. If you want to experience what it feels like to float in space, this is something you have to try.

Enjoy nature with a relaxing Hudson River cruise.

After a relaxation spa visit, it’s time for us to explore the beauty that makes up Kingston and the Hudson River. With Hudson River Cruises you can explore the Hudson River and enjoy the sights and sounds you can only find in Kingston. On this Cruise you will enjoy the architecture and size of the waterfront mansions, the wildlife of the Hudson River and historic lighthouses the East Coast is known for. Sit back and get ready to take pictures of the view and learn all about the Hudson with a staff ready to answer all your questions about New York’s first capital city Kingston, NY.

Top Kingston restaurants that have great taste for everyone.

Kingston, NY is filled with some of the best restaurants in the Hudson Valley area, from the eclectic taste of the Stockade District to the local shops providing good eats in the Rondout. The Rondout neighborhood is the place to discover food created by local businesses that aren’t just about making a few dollars but are truly made with love. Here’s a few of our favorite places to grab a bite to eat from our trip to Kingston.

The Tortilla Taco Bar a Mexican restaurant filled with authentic food, beverages, and amazing guacamole made fresh each morning. Don’t get too filled up on tacos and burritos, because you need to leave room for dessert. Dolce is a bakery known for its fresh desserts and friendly staff. Have you ever really had a donut if it wasn’t freshly made, warm, and served with a fresh cup of coffee? This is the perfect place to go for a snack or to stock up on great desserts for your trip back home.

The best hotel in Kingston, is not what you’d expect.

It’s been a long day and if you want to spend an evening in Kingston and do it in style, we recommend The Strand House. Built in the 1800s as an office building, The Strand House is a beloved landmark in Kingston for bringing industry and helping create the exciting city it is today. The Strand House was restored to keep the history of the building on the outside, while making it a modern and comfortable place for your weekend getaway. With rooms bigger than a lot of Upper East Side apartments, this is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or fun weekend with friends.
