Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site is one of the coolest places to visit in the Hudson Valley, if you ask me. Located in beautiful, Hyde Park, I couldn’t think of a better way than to spend a fall day on the grounds exploring and enjoying this historical site.

If you’ve ever heard of the Vanderbilt family then you would be fascinated to take a tour throughout one of their homes. I had the chance to visit these beautiful grounds a few years back with my sister. I loved exploring the Mansion and pretending as if I lived there (maybe in another life). The Italian renaissance style theme throughout the house made you feel as if you were living during that time period. The white pillars, tapestries and sculptures throughout the home were incredible. It was amazing to see how millionaires lived in the 19th century. The tour guides I had were super knowledgeable and made you feel as if it was your very own estate.

As of November 1, 2020 Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site updated their hours of operation. The park grounds will be open from 8 am- 4 pm. The gates will also open and close at those times as well.

I’d say grab some goodies and plan a picnic on the beautiful grounds of the Vanderbilt Mansion. The view of the Hudson River cannot be beat especially with the fall foliage.

They are currently working on virtual tours; let’s hope that we can explore the inside of one of the most historic sites in the Hudson Valley.
