  5. Catching a Farmers’ Market or Street Fair

Danee Gilmartin, author of, lives abroad and blogs about her visits to museums all over the world. She’s also an unapologetic booster of all things Nyack. “If you haven’t heard about Nyack, then you are missing a very quaint and historic town that is a short trip from New York City,” she says. “Go at the right time (weekends or mid-day) and you can explore this town’s great restaurants (my favorites are Thai House and a casual pizza joint called Turiello’s) bustling streets, scenic views and trails along the Hudson River, an abundance of parks for lazy picnics.” Gilmartin says one of her favorite small art galleries is The Edward Hopper House Art Center, where she worked earlier in her career.
