"River and Natural Scenery"

Bedford Tourism

About an hour away or 46 miles from the buzz of NYC is the small town of Bedford. The town is home to just under 19,000 residents and is home to two national landmarks: the historic home of Bill and Lois Wilson, the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous and the John Jay Homestead, the original home of one of the founding fathers of the United States. 

The Mianus River flows through the small town that is surrounded by some of the best examples of New York's natural scenery. Several helicopter tours are available around Bedford, offering stellar views of the state, starting at about $700 per traveller. Bedford is also famously home to a long list of Hollywood and industry A-listers with some famous names including Mariah Carey, Blake Lively and Ralph Lauren.
