A pleasant and relaxed ride to DeWint House, where General George Washington had his headquarters a couple of times during the Revolutionary War. It's also where Major Andre was hanged as a spy. There's a museum and the original house which is furnished as it would have been in Washington's time. Picnic tables on the back lawn by a gurgling stream, so stop at the deli in Tappan to pick up lunch. (Don't forget your musette bag to carry lunch a half mile.) Plan to spend a little time at the site.
