September 22nd marked the beginning of Fall. For some, this is a time of year to enjoy pumpkin and apple picking, cozy nights at home and the transition into the cooler months.

For myself, I could live in an atmosphere of summer weather all year long. Who doesn't love to get locally made ice cream at our favorite stands?

Last year, I noticed that ice cream stands were open later into the year. Some of the stands stay until late September and into November.

Depending on the location, traffic and business, each stand will close at different times. I usually check their Facebook pages for announcements as it gets closer to mid October.

Some ice cream stands have switched over from summer flavors to now, fall inspired styles. There may be a change in hours as well.

Here are some of my favorite ice cream stands to visit in the Hudson Valley.

Quickway Twin Cone, Bloomingburg
