Garrison is located only 50 miles North of Manhattan and has some of the most spectacular sceneries close by.
It has become one of the most popular hideaways of the super successful New Yorkers that look for peace and quite since more of the houses are totally isolated from "civilization".
The city center is super tiny and there you will find an art center that offers classes for kids and adults and a charming local library. It's a great place for canoeing in the Hudson River and golf, since there are two golf courses (9-hole Highland Country Club - www.highlandscountryclub.net and 18-hole Garrison Golf Club - www.thegarrison.com).
Just 10 minutes away is Cold Spring, where you can have a nice dinner with wine and buy groceries.
There are beautiful houses around and it's a great place for weddings too!
