Peekskill is a friendly town, and there’s lots to do if you’re looking for summer activities. Here are a few we think are worth a mention:
Hike or bike the Blue Mountain Reservation This 1,538-acre park right in Peekskill proper features miles of trails for mountain biking, strolling and nature study, and offers challenging hikes to the tops of two large peaks, Mt. Spitzenberg and Blue Mountain.
Take in a summer show or just chill by the water at Riverfront Green Park. A great place to river watch, check out some cool sculptures, enjoy a picnic or bring the kids to the playground. There are nearby restaurants, bars, delis and an ice cream shop, so you don’t have to trek back to town.
Enjoy Peekskill and the Hudson Valley by getting out on the water for a relaxing cruise. Trinity Cruise Company offers cruises from Peekskill’s Riverfront Green Park through the Hudson Highlands. Check their calendar for their regular schedule and special events such as the monthly Wine Tasting Cruise with Dylan’s Wine Cellar and the Brews & Blues Cruise with Peekskill Brewery growlers.
One of the Peekskill Brewery’s most anticipated events of the year. The pig roast is right around the corner! Buy your tickets today! Bring the whole family for music, food and beer (for folks over 21). Music this year by The Brighton Beat!
