This 100-plus-year-old farm in the Warwick Valley is notable for allowing visitors to drive their cars straight to any of their 10,000 trees. And once you pick your spot, you can even set up a picnic while you hunt for the perfect apple. Their website also features a handy ripening guide so you can decide which weekend to visit based on your favorite variety. And if you’re in a rush, you can preorder goodies like pies and Apple Cider Donuts to pick up on your way out.
