If you ask Hudson Valley residents where to find the best views in the Valley, many of them would tell you the Walkway Over the Hudson. And they’d be right. No matter where you look from the Walkway, it’s gorgeous. The river, the mountains, the sunrises and sunsets. So, it only stands to reason that if you want the best view of fireworks on the 4th of July, the Walkway Over the Hudson is the place to be.
