How was your experience?
The ride up and down the Hudson on an late summer day was pleasant--the scenery was beautiful and the captain offered a lot of fun facts about different sites on the river and on land (visible from the river). Bear Mountain State Park is a lovely park, however the Oktoberfest was disappointing. With only three beers to choose from and not a great variety of food, it was a sub-par festival. Even the craft vendors were not inspiring. I would not recommend this trip as advertised--if the highlight of the trip was to attend the Oktoberfest.
