We love New York. Love it. Especially this time of the year. But to truly appreciate this city, you have to leave it from time to time. And boy have we lined up a great way to refresh, recharge and explore the Hudson Valley. We have not one, but two getaway packages that are, no kidding, so good.

The first package is a great way to get to know the area around Hudson, which is quickly becoming a home-away-from-home for Brooklyn weekend-trippers. You’ll get a two-night stay at the Barn at Copake Lake, a tour of the Old Klaverack Brewery, a sweet barbecue feast at American Glory and a tasting at Hillrock Distillery. There’s also a gift basket from Ole Hudson, a trip to Chatham Brewery, and a night at the Hudson Opera House in the mix. That is a full weekend.

The second package is the perfect way to explore the area around Monticello and Bethel (which, in our opinion, is the next upstate place that is going to be “discovered”). You’ll win two nights, including meals, at Villa Roma (this place has everything, from hot tubs to bocce courts, indoor and out), as well as dinner for two at Grappa Ristorante, a cheese basket to beat the band from Formaggio Cheese and season passes to Edible events and two UpOut Insider memberships.

Either way, these getaways will make it possible to achieve escape velocity from the city, explore somewhere new, or maybe return to somewhere you already know you love, and recharge.
