TIVOLI, N.Y. -- It’s hard to resist the summertime combo of sipping and noshing outdoors. All you need is some sun (or shade) and your choice of a secluded patio, sidewalk seating, waterside dining or a rooftop deck -- and someone else doing the cooking, cleaning and serving.

Why It's Outdoor Worthy: You don't need a passport to feel like you've traveled across the Atlantic to Ireland. Traghaven welcomes its customers in what its website calls the “spirit of an authentic West Cork public house." Add to that friendliness an enclosed backyard patio that doubles as a beer garden in warmer months. The pub, known for its whiskey and beer offerings, also features play readings and traditional Celtic music.
