Welcome to the Hudson Valley, a destination filled with iconic cities and towns, gorgeous mountain and river scenery and plenty of exciting things to do. This historic region boasts attractions both new and old, especially when visiting Rhinebeck, which hosts both the celebrity-owned candy store, Samuel’s Sweet Shop, and the Beekman Arms, which claims to be the oldest inn in the country. A destination for film and television crews, Dutchess County—home to Poughkeepsie, Beacon and Rhinebeck— provided filming locations for numerous productions, including Amazon’s Upload, John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place, Things Heard and Seen on Netflix and HBO’s I Know This Much Is True with Mark Ruffalo.
You can easily find family fun with rides and children’s activities at the newly opened and wildly popular LEGOLAND in Goshen. Would you rather down an ice-cold beer while gazing at a rugged mountainous landscape? The Hudson Valley is known for its craft beverages, distilleries and cideries. When experiencing the Catskill Beverage Trail, or visiting Hillrock Estate Distillery, you won’t be disappointed. All of your foodie needs are covered with the exploding farm-to-table movement all over the region, the Culinary Institute of America and Michelin-rated restaurants, 32 of which can be found in Westchester. The great outdoors takes on new meaning here with Walkway Over the Hudson, the longest elevated pedestrian bridge in the world, and NY Zipline Adventure Tours, which offers the Skyrider Tour, the highest, longest and fastest canopy tour in the U.S.
The Hudson Valley conjures up images of inspirational landscapes and stately historic sites. While those are great reasons to visit, the region offers so much more— a buzz-worthy food, wine and spirits scene, world-class art and architecture and outdoor recreation from golf to zip-lining.
Plus, every imaginable way to enjoy the Hudson River-kayak on it, swim in it or hover over it in a hot air balloon!
