Enjoy a 3.5-hour scenic sail up the Hudson River to the Palisades aboard Schooner Adirondack or Schooner America 2.0, both 1800s-style sailboats. Bordering the Hudson River north of Fort Lee, New Jersey, the Palisade Cliffs are among the most dramatic geologic features in New York City's vicinity.

- Complimentary homemade hot cocoa
