About the Hudson Valley
The Hudson Valley is a collection of up and coming towns with antique shops galore, artist’s scenes, and several award winning farm-to-table restaurants. It’s an ideal getaway for all of those reasons, but it is also far more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. The views are incredible and it’s the perfect place to pack a picnic and enjoy the outdoors – which is exactly what we were looking for after so many months at home.
A two hour drive from New York City – Hudson Valley is often thought of as the ideal escape from city life but it’s really a manageable road trip for anyone in the Northeast. (For our readers on the west coast – bookmark this page for your next trip east. There are 3 nearby airports).
It’s important to note that there are different towns and you may want to choose to check out a different area each day. Organizing our trip this way made it much less overwhelming! Below is my list of shopping, hikes and attractions to bookmark for your trip to the Hudson Valley.
