Weekend Getaway - Dia:Beacon

Spring is a great time to do some local exploring and have a quick weekend getaway to enjoy new places not too far from home. One place that I discovered about a year ago was the Dia modern art museum in Beacon, NY. Not only is the train ride from NYC along the Hudson River beautiful, but the area surrounding the museum is so serene. The café inside the Dia is quite lovely to have lunch at as well. The MTA also offers a package deal that includes a round trip ticket on the Metro North along with a ticket to the museum. Get all the details here:

And check out the Dia website to find out about current exhibits. Their permanent collection is also amazing:
