Many people assume that once the flip-flops are put away it’s time to stop thinking about river cruises, but that’s just not the case. If you’re looking for something to help you celebrate fall or need a last-minute idea for a company/group outing, check out Spirit of New York and New Jersey.

These fall foliage cruises depart from Chelsea Piers in Manhattan and Lincoln Harbor in Weekhawken and offer a lovely way to sightsee and enjoy the autumn colors.

Gliding north along the Upper West Side and past the George Washington Bridge, take in the views for three hours aboard the cruise with lunch and cocktail service. In addition to enjoying the colorful scene, the boats have games, including shuffleboard and a life-sized Jenga, on the rooftop deck with a DJ.

Details: Depart at 11:30am for three-hour cruise

Dates: Oct. 15 and Oct. 22 are the NJ sailings from Lincoln Harbor Marina

Price: $62.90 per adult

Only 90 minutes from Portland International Airport, groups can ski with locals, enjoy a beer at a craft brewery, spend the night in a mountain resort and follow snowshoe trails through old growth forests on Mt. Hood. These three ski resorts offer a wealth of entertaining options. mthoodterritory.com

 

The 160th anniversary of the Colorado Gold Rush is underway. While settlers originally migrated west in hopes of striking gold, groups and leisure travelers today head to Colorado in fall to strike it rich with adventures. Here are two fun ideas for groups during this golden season.
