Looking for a novel way to see the fall foliage? Hop aboard SeaStreak's high-speed catamaran ferry and sail along the picturesque Hudson River to Bear Mountain Inn's annual Oktoberfest, where you can indulge in German food and beer, go for a nature hike, visit the zoo, and ride on the merry-go-round. In short, the whole day sounds like something that might happen in a quirky Zooey Deschanel movie, in which she would take Polaroids of you under the trees and on said carousel, and you would chase each other, laugh, and pretend you were 10 again. Did we mention that the ferry offers a full-service cash bar?
Saturdays, 9:30 a.m. Starts: Oct. 8. Continues through Oct. 29, 2011
