Highland Falls Things to Do
Fourth of July in Highland Falls!
A real hometown celebration. A grand party, which includes an impressive parade and activities throughout the day. If you've never seen a greased-pole-climbing competition, you haven't lived. The day culminates with fireworks so close the ashes may actually fall in your hair! And I might even be able to get you invited to a pool party.

Highland Falls Restaurants
Of course, I'd be in big trouble if I picked a favorite restaurant, but you won't go hungry (or thirsty) in this town. Choices include Chinese, Mexican, Latin American, Italian, American and, yes, even a Mc Donalds! But you'll have to email me if you want a specific recommendation.
Highland Falls Favorites
Favorite thing: Say hi to the nice folks at
B. Rose Hardware, right on Main Street. A family-run business for almost 100 years. If you haven't guessed, it's run by my family, so let's just say it won't be family-run for another 100 years.
Favorite thing: Try to catch a view of the Hudson, though I can't think of anywhere in HF itself that offers a great spot for tourists. Better head up to West Point or down to Bear Mountain for that, unless you can get yourself an invitation to my parents' house.
Fondest memory: Bear Mountain has lots of hiking trails. You can purchase maps at almost any bookstore in New York State, or at the visitors' center on the Palisades Interstate Parkway a few miles south.
Favorite thing: not blink, or you'll miss this view from route 9W just north of the Bear Mountain Circle. Located on the Hudson River between Bear Mountain State Park and West Point Military Academy, many of the things to do in HF are actually located in one of those two places.
