HUDSON VALLEY
Just north of the noise and traffic of New York City lies a region of unparalleled natural beauty, cultural offerings and historic attractions. Outdoor adventures abound: hiking, kayaking, skiing in the Catskill foothills or rockclimbing in the world-famous Gunks; checking out the impressive wine region or rambling through the charming river towns and cutesy-chic villages, shopping and browsing on their eclectic downtown streets. Visit Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome’s weekend vintage air shows or the charming Warren Street in Hudson with a mix of antique shops, galleries and restaurants. The sizzling hot dining scene continues: enjoy a meal, knowing that much of your food has likely been sourced nearby at one of the region’s many farms. Whether you want to dart up for a day trip or spend a wonderful weekend exploring, the Hudson Valley promises to be full of unique pleasures.
We Recommend
EAT

Amazing food and over-the-top attention to detail. No wonder everybody is buzzing about {pretty to think so}, the latest addition to the already hot Rhinebeck dining scene.

DRINK

Raise your glass to the hottest bar in the region—with multiple ‘best of’ awards to its name already—Goodnight Kenny in Poughkeepsie where the drinks are strong and the crowd is hot. In other words, the perfect bar.

SLEEP

The new James Newbury Hotel in Coxsackie is a four-star, industrial chic hotel just steps from the Hudson River. Walk to the adorbs downtown to eat and shop.

FUN

Jack-O-Lantern Blaze in Croton-on-Hudson is the majestic and super fun Halloweenesque extravaganza. Who doesn’t love lit up pumpkins, anyway?
