About Hudson Valley Tourism:
The Hudson Valley is a National Heritage Area that has inspired painters, poets, essayists, and novelists for centuries. It is home to the Forever Wild Catskill Park and the oldest continuous settlement in the nation. It is a region as diverse, as wild, as sophisticated, and as welcoming as any in the world.
For 150 miles, this pristine New York State destination offers leafy drives, wineries, farm-to-table options for foodies, and a break from the stresses of city life. Home to The Culinary Institute of America, where soon-to-be chefs learn their skills, the Hudson Valley’s verdant richness lends itself to inspired cooking and dining. Michelin-starred and Bib Gourmand restaurants aren’t hard to come by, though an advanced reservation is advisable.
This is also a place where artistic minds come to be inspired. Visit Dia Beacon, one of several Dia sites and home to the foundation’s permanent collection of art from the 1960s and 70s, gain a new perspective on the landscape at Storm King Art Center where sculptures loom larger-than-life, or visit the places where the Hudson River School began.
Find exciting festivals and events, from the mad-capped wonders of the New York Renaissance Faire, to the annual Garlic Festival, and the Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze. Find artisan-crafted goods on Main Streets, and visit the internationally famous Woodbury Common Premium Outlets to find luxury and brand name goods.
The Hudson Valley region’s close proximity to New York City and the ease of flying into the New York Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, make it an easy-to-get-to destination for visitors from around the world. Whatever the reason for your visit, Make It Yours in the Hudson Valley.
