Want to go back to nature?
How about taste some great beer, wine and incredible food?
Try the Hudson Valley.
It starts just north of New York City, and it has a little bit of everything you’d want in a getaway.
The first time you visit, you’ll be upset you never visited before.
Here are nine reasons to visit the Hudson Valley right now:
1. Location, Location, Location
The Hudson Valley is extremely accessible.
The region stretches more than 100 miles up the Hudson River area, from Westchester County in the south all the way up to Albany County in the north.
There are airports nearby, too.
The region is also very accessible for residents of New England, the Philadelphia area and much of New York state (just a few hours drive at most).
2. Hike A Mountain
One major reason New York City people venture north to the Hudson Valley? Nature.
The Hudson Highlands and Harriman and Bear Mountain state parks offer perfect day hiking opportunities in the south, plus the Appalachian Trail was born here at Bear Mountain.
Farther north, the Shawangunk Ridge and Catskill Mountains provide weekend excursions.
For the super adventurous, scale the Trapps and get ridiculous views of an endless sky.
