There are few things more stressful on the weekends than brunch in Manhattan—so why not brunch around Manhattan? Classic Harbor Line offers brunch cruises around Manhattan's Upper West Side via the Hudson River with scenic views of the Palisade Cliffs and George Washington Bridge, all while enjoying a four-course buffet and your favorite boozy brunch beverage on a 1920s-style yacht. Bet your favorite brunch spot can't top that!

In this brunch buffet, you'll find bagels and lox—a New York brunch staple—along with everything from pastries to kale salads. There are also plenty of options for those with dietary restrictions as well, like a gluten-free waffle station and seasonal roasted veggies.

You also get your choice of a Bloody Mary, mimosa, sparkling wine, beer, wine, soda or juice—and coffee and tea are constantly being served. Additional mixed drinks and other beverages are available for purchase. We definitely want to try their massive mugs of spiked hot cocoa!

This cruise starts back up for the season on October 19th, and is only available on Saturdays and Sundays until November 10th—so you'll want to book your trip ASAP. The boat has wrap-around windows for optimal foliage watching and is heated throughout to keep you warm and cozy.

The Fall Foliage Brunch Cruises depart out of Chelsea Piers at 10 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. and run for two hours and 45 minutes. Tickets are just under $120 per person and each boat can seat up to 80 people. Bon voyage!
