Take a drive this weekend approximately 55 miles from NYC and you’ll discover the beautiful town of Warwick, NY. Once a resident, Warwick will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s a great place to bring the entire family. Enjoy the Fall colors and the picturesque views of Warwick Valley.
Arrive early! Spend a half day apple picking at over five apple orchards — Applewood, Masker’s, Ochs, Pennings, Wright and Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery, and Apple Ridge; see www.warwickvalleyappletrail.com for more information.
Drive into the Village of Warwick where you be pleased to find beautiful antique, vintage and accessories shops. A must stop is The Red Shutters; a full service design firm. Marina Case Alario, Owner and Principal Designer for The Red Shutters, combines superior taste and New York style with local charm; www.theredshutters.com. If you like vintage and collectibles head over to The Eclectic Eye, a few doors down; www.theeclecticeye.com. Before you head home go into Newhard’s on Main Street. Here you’ll find home accessories and interesting children toys. The store is owned by Warwick’s Mayor Michael Newhard. Tell them, Ivy sent you.
