Have you ever wanted to get away but not go too far? Staycations are ideal to enjoy a mini escape but have the convenience and comfort of not going too far from your home.

While vacations are relaxing, can lower stress and allow you to see the world and meet new people, at times we find ourselves not able to plan a long vacation. Thankfully, the Hudson Valley is filled with an endless amount of activities, resorts, entertainment and overall, staycations.

If you're feeling as if you need to get even further away from the Hudson Valley, New York state can be enjoyed downstate or upstate and more.
