Its not too late to plan a weekend in Westchester this summer. Whether visiting with family, friends or solo, theres so much to do in the heart of the Hudson Valley. Westchester County Tourism has provided a variety of itineraries designed to meet every visitors special interest with activities from live music and family activities, to driving adventures and a tasting tour, visitors will never want to leave Westchester.

Westchesters Summer Escapes

Adventure Seekers: Looking to get outside and really be adventurous? Westchester is the perfect place to take the kids out for a hike or link up with an old pal and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Hudson River. L.L Bean Outdoor Discovery gives those interested in water sports a chance to paddle board or kayak at Five Islands Park on the Long Island Sound. Or stay on land and enjoy Croton Point Parks 508 acres of pure beauty. Although Anthonys Nose is a strenuous 3.5 hour hike, the view of the Hudson River from the top is one that visitors dont want to miss.

Westchester Without a Car: One of the best things about Westchester is its accessibility. No car? No problem! The variety of mass transit available to tourists and residents in the area allows for anyone to get from New York City to Westchester in less than an hour. Metro-North connects all parts of Westchester to Grand Central Terminal. Visitors can cheaply and conveniently get in and out of the city. Enjoy a Metro-North train ride up to Tarrytown Waterfront and experience the Scenic Hudson Riverwalk Park. With tons of delicious restaurants and Pierson Park nearby, a night in Tarrytown will be a memorable one.

Tasting Tour & Picnic: Westchester County may be known for its real estate or the fabulous people that reside here, however this Tasting Tour & Picnic will bring all attendees to some of Westchesters great restaurants. Start off the day with a delicious brunch at Tarry Lodge in Port Chester which features exquisite Italian trattoria dishes and an all-Italian wine selection while enjoying a waterside view. Crabtrees Kittle House in Chappaqua may have just about every kind of wine. With a cellar that holds about 65,000 bottles and a list of 6,000 wines that parties may choose from, theres no wonder that this place is known for having one of the finest collections of wine in the world.

Musical Pairing

Musical Pairing was featured on NewsWatch as part of its monthly AppWatch, which takes a look at the latest and coolest applications on the market for iOS, Android, and Windows. Joe Toohey, the host of AppWatch and technology expert, conducted the app review and shared with viewers how this app takes the mathematical values for foods and music and combines them into harmonious pairings.

People can break down nearly any situation or concept into a mathematical equation. And that simple premise applies to food and music. So Barbara Werner, a Chef and music lover, has taken the mathematical values for foods and music, and combined them into harmonious pairings.

Her book series explains this process, but shes also created an app called Musical Pairing – for those who dont want to do the math themselves. The app has users enter the food theyre eating the protein, the sauce, the cooking method, and the level of spice. Then users select the genre of music theyd like to hear. The app gives users beverage recommendations and then plays music as they eat, enhancing their experience.

Barbara has taken her musical pairing show on the road, hosting pop up events from California to New York. The dinners are all BYOH -Bring Your Own Headset. Tickets for these events are very limited and sell out fast, but the app offers the same unique combinations of music and food pairing.
