Live in the Heart of the Hudson River Valley
The Hudson River Valley offers a rich mix of history, legend, present-day cultural activities, fascinating historic houses, churches, and gardens – all located along one of the world’s great rivers. Rebirth and growth are evident in the increase in cultural and recreational opportunities as river towns reclaim old manufacturing sites and revitalize their business districts. Much of the planning and rebuilding focuses on strolling, dining, and shopping – all taking advantage of the spectacular views across the Hudson. Each village conducts its own street fairs and park concerts; the art groups and historic sites hold many special events throughout the year.
