Returned for our second annual trip up to Bear Mountain State Park for Oktoberfest 2013. Starting from September 13 until October 26, we were sure to grab our tickets early as every year tends to sell out. Fall foliage was much more appealing this year, however the 3 hour Circle Line ferry ride from 42nd street was much colder since we boarded on the final ride for the season. Prior to last year, most of our day was spent on the boat and due to long lines for beer and food, time was limited once we entered Oktoberfest on the mountain. Alas, a great escape from Manhattan allowed us to take in the autumn air and colorful scenery along the Hudson.
