Craving a comforting, get-away-from-it-all weekend? Tucked along the banks of the scenic Hudson River, this serene rural village, surrounded by rolling hills and farmlands, is a delightful option. A longtime favorite haunt of American artists and painters, Cold Spring sits across the river from the US Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., with commanding views. Main Street is lined with shops and restaurants, and there’s plenty of hiking and biking in the area, and boating on the Hudson. Or, grab a seat on a waterfront bench and watch the river run.
