 A quick two-hour train ride or drive from Manhattan, the city of Hudson has become a hot dining and shopping scene. Boutique hotels have opened on and around Warren Street, the mile-long district that runs uphill from the Hudson River, encompassing dozens of antique shops, award-winning restaurants, art galleries, stylish independent retailers, and small parks. It's entirely possible to experience Hudson without a car—the train station is a short walk from Warren Street—or you can get out and explore surrounding Columbia County, with its abundance of farms, charming villages, hiking trails, and must-see attractions. This weekend in Hudson itinerary offers options for both types of travelers. Either way, it's easy to fall in love with this former factory town that is now a free-spirited, thriving city.

Fall is a spectacular season in the Adirondacks. Outdoor adventurers can hike, climb, mountain bike, and canoe amidst colorful fall foliage. Visitors can stay in campgrounds or resorts within the six million acres of the Adirondack Park—with natural beauty everywhere you look! The Olympic Sports Complex in Lake Placid offers opportunities to try favorite winter sports activities, and while the ski runs at mountains like Gore and Whiteface aren't quite open yet, fall is an incredible time to take a scenic skyride on a chairlift, try out some downhill mountain biking, or go for a hike! Here are our favorite things to do this fall in the Adirondacks.
