Getaway for a newly divorced 50 year old mom

(New York City)

Does anyone know a budget getaway from NYC? I'm looking for a weekend getaway, possibly
a long weekend in August...Anywhere I can take a bus or train ride would be nice.

How about the Finger Lakes region?
by: tripdiva/webmaster

There are lots of options for a getaway in the Finger Lakes region.

While it may not be easy to get to by train and bus, it IS possible. Amtrak runs trains to Syracuse and Rochester; there are several bus lines that run from NYC to the area, also. You might take a train to Syracuse and a bus from there.

I'd suggest you choose a town you'd like to visit and focus your weekend there. There's a lot to do in the area, so pick a place that seems to match your interests, whether it's food and wine, shopping, outdoor activities, whatever.

This site has TONS of information about the area and should be able to help you make a decision:

They list accommodations from hotels and B&Bs to farms and guesthouses. They also list activities, fairs, local tours you could take, etc. Some are women-only, if that makes you feel more comfortable.

Whether you're going it alone or taking a friend, I'd think you'd have a great getaway in the Finger Lakes.
