“After a stroll over the bridge, stop at Farmers and Chefs on the other side of the bridge for lunch or dinner and a nice view of the bridge. Great outdoor dining and dog friendly.”
“Take a tour of the historic Hyde Park home once inhabited by Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. Run by the National Park Service, a park ranger will guide you through the property of the former president. A $20 entrance fee will also grant you entry to the Presidential Museum and Library.”
“This place is an hour away, but well worth the trip (especially during the fall foliage)! You will be hard pressed to find another place as unique as this on the east coast. Expect to do a bit of walking as the oversized art displays are quite spread out across the property. This is also a great day trip for kids as there is endless green space to run around in.”
