This week was the one here at CharterWave headquarters just outside of New York City. We’ve had sweltering weather well into September–an unusual last blast of summer at our latitude–but finally the cooler autumn breezes are blowing in. The air conditioning is finally off and the windows are open, and I’m slowly but surely trading my T-shirts for my favorite lightweight sweaters.
Of course, this change in the seasons means that within the next six to eight weeks, all the leaves are going to begin to change colors. The lush greens of summer will give way to the reds, oranges and yellows of autumn.
Honestly, is there any place prettier than the Northeast United States during fall?
If you, like me, love this time of year for its beauty, then you might consider booking a charter aboard the 97-foot Santa Margherita motoryacht Sima, which charters through Edmiston. She joined the charter fleet in midsummer 2014 and has a full season of these “leaf-peeping” charters under her belt, so her captain should know exactly where to take clients for the best views all along the Hudson River. You could start and end in New York City, if you’d like, and grab a bag of warm chestnuts from a street vendor in Central Park. You’ll also have stunning views of the Statue of Liberty, as shown with Sima in the photo at right. (Now that’s my kind of long-weekend fun.)
Sima is available for day charters, weekend bookings and corporate events. Any reputable charter broker can tell you more.
