Wine-tasting at vineyards near New York City? I didn't even know that was possible! But the Shawangunk Wine Trail, "is nestled between the famous Shawangunk Mountains and the majestic Hudson River in Ulster County, just 85 miles north of New York City." It's an organization of eight wineries and you can visit and sample their wines. There are plenty of other attractions in the area, from nature trails to farmer's markets. I guess it makes sense, but really, I had no idea this was just upstate. I'm going to go check it out for sure.
