Salingers Orchard Farm Market and Bakery

Reviewed By Ginacucina - Mahopac

Salingers is definitely an off-the-beaten-path orchard and store. I love shopping here for apples, pears, pumpkins...whatever is in season. They also offer a lot of jams, jellies, relishes, pickled veggies, fresh honey, vegetable produce, and most important at holiday time, PIES fresh from their own bakery! Lots and lots of pies. If you're thinking Thanksgiving, you better pre-order.

Not many people expect to find the largest indoor Buddha in the Western Hemisphere in Carmel, NY....impressive, peaceful, quiet, beautiful setting. I love coming here just to quietly walk the grounds and appreciate the natural surroundings.

Tarrywile Park & Mansion

Reviewed By Reactor1966 - Danbury, Connecticut

I rented the mansion for my wife's Roaring 20's birthday party, and it could not have been a more perfect setting for the party. You don't even need to decorate the place, it has so much character. Like something out of a movie. It's no wonder so many people get their pictures taken here.

Top notch 4-screen movie theater playing new releases. Within walking distance of many good restaurants. Best part is their mission to provide meaningful employment to adults with special needs.

Wolf Conservation Center

Reviewed By lindaofny - South Salem, New York

WCC raises wolves in a protected setting in the hopes they can be reintroduced into the wild. They regularly run educational programs with their ambassador wolves that are used to appearing in public. The center also maintains an internet/Facebook presence with photographs and recordings of their elusive residents.

A very worthy recipient of contributions if you love wildlife.

For years my Niece has sent pictures of her children playing in this beautiful place. I visited with them the other day - and I felt it was a shame to call it a swamp! It has fresh water flowing and beautiful foliage. A lovely place to see.

The house is intriguing, with many of the rooms and their furnishings taken from Italian castles and chateaus and built into the house. Quite incredible. The gardens are lovely as well and the concerts can be exceptional, with a choice of venues to suit the music and the size of the audience,

This is a wonderful place to see all different kinds of animals. Wildlife, birds of prey, farm animals, and even camels. It isn't huge so it's a great place to stop over to see fun animals and not take up your whole day if you don't want it to.

Hammond Museum and Japanese Stroll Garden

Reviewed By Diane R - Danbury, Connecticut, United States

I met a friend at the Hammond Museum to view the "Of Pirates, Mermaids and True Loe:100 Years of Tattoo Art". It was really interesting to see the tattoos before color. They were mostly black and red and then green was used. If you have tattoos or are interested in what they used to look like before the ones we have today, go to the Hammond Museum. We didn't walk in the Japanese Stroll Garden because it was a wet and windy day. The exhibit takes about 45 minutes to view and it was well worth it.
