New York Diaries: Cold Springs

I was pleasantly surprised when I visited Cold Springs, NY. It's a small town with great hiking and a quaint downtown situated right on the Hudson.

A lot of the homes are built in a cottage style and so many of them had amazing gardens. Sunflowers definitely seem to be a town favorite. It gives the town almost a fairy tale type feel. 

To actually get to the Hudson you have to travel (travel as in walk less than 1 minute) through an old train tunnel. It was super neat and the tunnel walls were lined with graffiti.

On one side of the tunnel is the main street and as soon as you pop out of the other side you see a breathtakingly picturesque spot perfect for a romantic picnic or just a place to take out a blanket and book and enjoy creation.

If you come to Cold Springs you have to go to Maggie Moo's, Its a cash only ice cream spot that has rotating flavors that change daily. We heard a lot about this place before visiting so we wondered if it would actually live up to the hype.

I can honestly say it lived up to every amazing word that was said about it. The customer service was as on point as well as the creamy soft flavorful ice creams. I especially loved that they let you split your scoop with two flavors instead of having to pay more for a whole other scoop.

There are also a ton of flavors so I would suggest going to their website beforehand to have an idea of what you would like to order.
