We are so fortunate to live in the beautiful Hudson Valley. If you have resided in this area for over 5+ years you wonder what else there is to do and explore. I find myself looking up places to visit and check out during the weekends. Thankfully, the Hudson Valley is always growing and expanding so we have endless opportunities. This weekend, do something different, take a break and enjoy yourself.

  • Explore the great outdoors

We change with the seasons here in the Hudson Valley. From the beautiful views across the counties to historical landmarks to visit, we can never get bored.

Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park

This walkway is known as the world’s longest pedestrian bridge that’s elevated. As one of the most popular walking trails around, I would visit here at least once in your life.

61 Parker Ave, Poughkeepsie

Minnewaska State Park Preserve

The views of the Shawangunk’s are incredible at this location. Between the hiking trails and swimming areas, Minnewaska is known as the most visited outdoor spot around.

Storm King Art Center

This art center is named after the Storm King Mountain and is an open air museum. I enjoyed these grounds as a child and returned a few years back. I spent the day biking around the beautiful pieces of art.

  • Visit a new restaurant

I am always on the lookout for fun, new places to eat in the Hudson Valley. Here are few places that I have been to that I enjoyed and look forward to returning.

Pharmacy Goshen

Between the names of this cool place, the 80’s theme and location, Pharmacy is one of my new favorite places. Be sure to enjoy exquisite apps and neon sign themed atmosphere.

City Winery Montgomery

I have heard great things about City Winery and finally had the chance to check it out for myself. During the summer, this winery offers tours, live music and outdoor seating. During the cooler months, I enjoyed sitting by their indoor and outdoor fireplace along with attending their cocktail making classes.

The Roundhouse Beacon

Beacon has such cool, hipster spots throughout the town. The Roundhouse has held weddings and events previously. This local restaurant has a neat, outdoor waterfall to see as well.
