Hiking, Coffee, Ramen, Brewery, and Shopping.
Peekskill, NY has it all and then some.
Here’s our guide to an authentic, outdoorsy and delicious day spent in this hipster town.
Get a Latte at Peekskill Coffee House
Address: 101 South Division Street
Because every good day starts with coffee, grab a brew here at Peekskill Coffee and don’t forget a crepe too! This place has super good coffee and perfect grungy hipster décor that will make you want to grab a table and stay a while.
Go Shopping at Adorable Small Town Shops
Bruised Apple is your hot spot for used books and vinyl. At 923 Central Ave, this place boasts over 50,000 titles, so your odds of finding your next great read here are superb. It’s cute, cozy, personalized, hand painted and hipster in the extreme. So, you know, it’s perfect.
The Coop at 107 South Division Street is a great art antiques and curiosity shop. Go in to browse and you won’t leave empty-handed.
Quirkshop at 23 North Division Street has some adorable clothing.
Bazaar and Thrift at 1009 Park Street is bursting with treasures as well.
Go Hiking at Anthony’s Nose
Ready to breathe some fresh air? Put Anthony’s Nose in your gps. Park for free and with caution (traffic!) by the side of the road, then hit the steep and moderately challenging uphill to Anthony’s nose.
You wont regret the two hours, two miles round trip, with this gorgeous Bear Mountain Bridge and Hudson river view at the top.
I humbly request that you check out Hike the Hudson Valley if you need help directions, mostly because his website is super great but also because maps are not my forte.
Get Soup at Ramensque
Address: 1008 Main Street
Because, ramen. I can’t not order the kimchi ramen, but everything I’ve tried here is soup perfection.
Enjoy a Beer at Peekskill Brewery
Address: 47-53 South Water Street
With nine beers on tap all original and fresh flavors you might need to hang out a while and try them all. Or if I wore you out too much, you can take some home too.
Hope you had fun exploring this great town with us!
