Break the spell of the winter doldrums, by visiting Nyack for wonderful winter fun for all ages!
Cross-country Skiing, Ice Fishing, and More Outdoor Fun
Nyack Beach State Park’s trails are a great place for a winter walk, cross-country skiing, or ice-shoeing by the Hudson River. Or take a hike up Hook Mountain, which is beautiful in any season, but it’s especially peaceful and scenic in winter.
Just a few minutes from downtown Nyack, Rockland Lake State Park is a perfect spot for ice fishing, ice shoeing, cross-country skiing, or in milder weather, walking, roller blading, or biking along the paved path around the lake.
Memorial Park has a great sledding hill, and is equally great for taking in a gorgeous view of the new Mario Cuomo Bridge from the Bridge Viewing Platform.
Visit Rockland Center for the Arts (RoCA)
Take a winter walk through RoCA’s Catherine Konner Sculpture Park to see the Nests and Natural Progressions exhibits (now through April 2020), and catch a glimpse of nearby Buttermilk Falls from the trail. Then come in from the cold to see their current exhibits, take a weekend workshop, attend one of their many cultural events–like panel discussions, musical performances, and film screenings!
Visit Nearby Bear Mountain for Ice Skating and More
Grab your winter gear and spend an afternoon sledding, cross-country skiing, and ice skating at Bear Mountain’s traditional outdoor rink. Then warm up by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa, and take a ride on their beautiful carousel, featuring 36 hand-carved woodland creatures, before heading back to Nyack.
Time to Head Indoors?
Browse through Nyack’s unique shops to pick up a gift for your Valentine or take advantage of post-holiday sales.

Then have a fabulous meal at one of the village’s many eclectic eateries, as Nyack is quickly becoming a fantastic foodie destination!
