When it comes to day-tripping, the Hudson River Valley is a
traveler’s dream. The banks of the Hudson are dotted with small, charming destination towns, each with its own unique character and attractions. What’s more, the valley is a worthy destination year-round: fall apple picking, winter hiking, spring antiquing and summer county fairs truly offer something for everyone.
Whether you’re a budget-conscious parent looking for a family-friendly outing or a couple in search of a romantic weekend, the Hudson Valley offers plenty of opportunities to get away.
It’s also easy to get there. Take a straight shot up the scenic and beautiful New York State Thruway and pick an exit; it’s hard to go wrong.
If you’re in need of guidance, here’s an overview of three great river towns, offering a sampling of the area’s food, arts and family culture.
