A few weeks ago, I hiked through the snowy hills of Fort Tryon Park to The Cloisters, a medieval art museum operated by The Metropolitan Museum of Art. (Tip: Visit both in one day and admission to the second museum is free.) Though I've lived nearby for a few years now, this was my first time visiting the museum, but it definitely won't be the last. Inside I found the gorgeously detailed Unicorn Tapestries and many other pieces that date back to the Middle Ages. Not only are the artworks, stained glass windows, intricate doorframes and religious artifacts inside the museum stunning, but the exterior architecture and the spectacular views of the Hudson River alone are worth the trip Uptown. During the warmer months, you can enjoy the outdoor gardens and The Trie Café, too. Plan your trip at metmuseum.org/visit/visit-the-cloisters.
