It's prime leaf-peeping season but you don't need to haul yourself up to Vermont. The Classic Harbor Line is offering a fall foliage cruise that starts in Manhattan and meanders along the Hudson river. The cruise includes a brunch buffet and warm apple cider. The three-hour tour takes place not on the SS Minnow but on the Manhattan, a 1920s-style commuter boat that has an enclosed seating area, glassed-in observatory and heated and enclosed cabin. The cruise runs each weekend through November 12 and costs $85 per person.
