Welcome to Day Tripping: our seasonal guides for getting out of the city this summer, and what to do when you're there.

First things first: Westchester County is not upstate. Now that that's out of the way, let's figure out where to shop there. We decided to focus on the northern part of the county this time—with a more suburban vibe (read: lots of trees) than points south, you'll feel like you're much farther from home than you actually are.
Plan to visit these ten places mapped out below for your day trip excursion, which range from upscale boutiques to an independent bookstore and a highly-rated brunch. Warning: You'll need a car, or at least someone who has one, to get around up there—it might be best to hit up a Hertz before you get out of the city.
