What we're about


Hi Everyone, I would love to get more people interested in local travel, supporting their local farmers and producers and interested in local wine, beer, cider and spirits tasting events, pick-your-own fruit excursions and weekend getaways within a few hours of NYC. I founded EscapeMaker.com 17 years ago, with one mission - to make great escapes for people. Transportation is a big concern for most New Yorkers, so I've partnered with car-sharing companies and companies like Metro-North and Amtrak to open up options for people to getaway and explore their environs. If you never go to EscapeMaker.com that's fine by me. What I want is to create steady and long lasting change in how people travel, what they choose to eat and drink and how that has an effect on our environment as well as our community. We hold a number of tasting events throughout the year in Union Square with Greenmarket as well as down at our Agritourism pop-up shop at Fulton Stall Market AND we now do farm and distillery tours up in Dutchess County and are developing even more for next year! These are great chances for friends to hang, singles to mingle, and families to spend quality time together. So whether you just want to make new friends or spend some time outside NYC, we encourage you to sign up for the club and we'll post a bunch of opportunities to do so as we go! Looking forward to meeting everyone! Have fun and happy travels!
