Soon the trees will be changing colors, cool autumn air will have us bundling up, pies will be baked, and with each footstep, we will be crunching leaves. There is not only so much to love about autumn, but there is so much to see and do as well.

“At Kendal on Hudson, the fall season is one of our favorites,” says Lisa Wacht, Health Services Director of Kendal® on Hudson, the only true Life Care community in Westchester County. “Residents love attending the various festivals, apple picking and pumpkin carving, and when they decide to have a moment of downtime, hot chocolate or apple cider is a must. It’s a really joyful time at Kendal on Hudson.”

Experience the Beauty of Fall in the Greater Westchester County

For our residents, families and the community, fall just wouldn’t be the same without taking in the beauty of the foliage. In Greater Westchester county, there are plenty of ways to do just that. Consider some of these places to embrace the gorgeous autumn season and discover new ways to experience its ambience.

    • Get a look at the bigger picture at the Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse. The views from the lighthouse are beautiful at any time of year, although in fall it’s even more beautiful. Climb the lighthouse to enjoy a peek of the colorful leaves over the water.
    • See the leaves with the Hudson Valley Fall Foliage Helicopter Tour. Feel like having an adventure or doing something you’ve never done? Take a helicopter tour to get a canopy-view of the beautiful colors.
    • Take a walk through the Rockefeller State Park Preserve. Located adjacent to Kendal on Hudson is the Rockwood Hall portion of Rockefeller State Park. Here you can find a beautiful array of leaves in varying colors. Enjoy a nice walk in the cool autumn air, bond with friends and soak in the season. Don’t forget to incorporate some fall fitness tips, such as stretching before your walk, staying hydrated, and wearing layers to adapt to changing temperatures.
  • Drive over the Tappan Zee Bridge to Rockland State Park. Here, you can enjoy views of the fall foliage from the banks of the Rockland Lake. Pack some warm and cozy blankets and have a picnic while you’re there!
