While the weather is still breezy and bearable, hit some of the city’s best beer gardens and boat parties for three smashing weekends of fun. This celebration fo German culture is certainly one of the best things to do in fall, so don’t miss out!

Watermark Oktoberfest

Escape to Munich without ever leaving NYC thanks to Watermark’s annual Oktoberfest extravaganza on Pier 15. You’ll get a killer arm workout while carrying one-liter steins ($16) filled to the brim with Hofbrau, Weihenstephan or Radeberger beer (and that means you won’t have to feel too guilty about gorging on German cuisine such as brats and pretzels). While you’re munching and getting tipsy, enjoy amazing views along the East River. Make sure to reserve your spot or book the two-hour tasting before you go.
