Take a trip Beacon and explore the Dia:Beacon Museum, Main Street boutiques and enjoy a meal at of the many local spots. This small town is less than 2 hours away from New York City on the Metro North and makes for a great weekend getaway. There are several Bed & Breakfasts as well as affordable AirBnbs or you can stay at the Roundhouse Hotel and fall asleep to the sound of a waterfall.
Stop in Dream In Plastic a small shop where you can buy all of those unique knick-knacks you see floating around the web as well as a million different patterned socks (pictured below). They have great gifts for family and friends and are located right down the street from Poppy's. Poppy's is an excellent burger spot with an outdoor area and delicious fries! It's a great eatery to pop into for a beer after a long day or for a quick bite. If burgers aren't really your thing, swing into Tito's for killer tacos!
