8. New York Water Taxi Fall Foliage Cruise

While New Yorkers are accustomed to seeing tourist-filled New York Water Taxis buzzing up and down the Hudson and East River, the boat tour company also offers Fall Foliage Cruises. Operating on four days in late-October and early-November, the day trip takes passengers on a peaceful and scenic ride up the Hudson River. The cruise lasts around 4.5 hours and includes lunch, wine tasting–and of course complimentary cider!
