Where do executives go when it’s time to decompress, de-stress, and unplug? We asked.

1. Nashville, TN

“You can just take a stroll in the downtown area, walk into any honky-tonk bar, and hear great music.”
– John Ravitz, CEO, American Red Cross, Westchester County, White Plains

2. Hudson River at the Hook Mountain State Park in Nyack, NY

“In any season, this locale offers everything I need to clear my thoughts. It’s close by, yet allows my mind to be far away.”
– Paul Adler, Vice President, Rand Commercial Services, White Plains

3. Charlestown, RI

“It has some of the most beautiful sandy beaches on the East Coast, is only two hours from Westchester, has none of the crowds of the Hamptons, and beats Jersey Shore traffic by about four hours. Plus, you can go fishing and kayaking on coastal ponds and golf for about twenty-five dollars a round!”
– Joe Vericker, Chief Photographer PhotoBureau, Inc., Scarsdale

4. Stockbridge, MA

“This is my favorite getaway spot anytime of the year. The Berkshire Mountains are beautiful for climbing or hiking. Stockbridge Bowl is great for kayaking, canoeing, and fishing. The country roads are well maintained and offer unmatched scenery for bicyclists. There are a ton of cultural activities there. And it’s all only two-and-a-half hours from Westchester.”
– Ron Volper, Managing Partner Ron Volper Group, Inc.–Building Better Sales Teams, White Plains

5. Marco Island, FL

“We actually bought a second home there. Our house is on a canal and we have access to the ocean, which is great because I love fishing. We just love the lifestyle down there.” 
– Bob Roth, President John Meyer Consulting, Armonk
