4 Super Fun Getaways to Take This Fall

It's leaf-peeping season again, Capital Region. Make the most of it.

Berkshire Museum
39 South Street, Pittsfield, MA
413.443.7171; berkshiremuseum.org
Explore the stories, ideas and experiences that have shaped your world at the Berkshire Museum! A series of all-new exhibitions that just debuted on the museum’s fully-renovated second floor promise to take you on an eye-opening journey around the world and through time. Check out The Land of the Thunder Dragon: Bhutan Through the Lens of Mead Eagle Photography, Objects and Their Stories and Muh-he-con-ne-ok: The People of the Waters That Are Never Still, on display now through January 9, 2022.

The Hyde Collection
161 Warren Street, Glens Falls
518.792.1761; hydecollection.org
The Hyde Collection is one of the Northeast’s exceptional small art museums with distinguished European and American art collections. Comparable to that of a major metropolitan museum, the core collection, acquired by museum founders Louis and Charlotte Hyde, includes works by such artists as Rembrandt, Pablo Picasso and Winslow Homer, and the museum’s Modern and Contemporary art collection features works by Grace Hartigan, Ellsworth Kelly, Sol LeWitt and more. Open a window on the world and visit The Hyde this fall.

Various destinations
800.872.7245; amtrak.com
From Lake Placid to Niagara Falls and Manhattan, there’s so much to explore in the great state of New York. And, thanks to Amtrak’s See NY deal, you can save 15 percent on your next Empire State trip now through 2023. Bonus: If you’re headed south to the city this fall, you’ll be one of the first to experience the new Moynihan Train Hall at Penn Station, which features state-of-the-art technologies and customer amenities, plus a spacious boarding concourse. Your next New York State adventure is just an Amtrak away.

NY Power Authority’s Blenheim-Gilboa Visitors Center
397 Power Plant Access Road, Gilboa
800.724.0309; nypa.gov
The visitor experience at Blenheim-Gilboa is a triple play. The science of electricity and hydropower is on exhibit at the Visitors Center. Right beside it, history is preserved at Lansing Manor, a 19th century home. And it’s all surrounded by trails, boating, fishing, and other outdoor recreation. Additional events are held throughout the year at the Schoharie County hydroelectric plant, and admission to the Lansing Manor and Visitors Center is always free, as are year-round events.
