It's easiest to get in by car. From Westchester County, take the Tappan Zee Bridge, or from New York City, you can choose to instead take the George Washington Bridge and the Palisades Parkway.
There are also buses from Port Authority in Midtown Manhattan, but it's a long haul.
Much of downtown Nyack is walkable, but if you want to go longer distances, a car or bike may be needed.
