    Culinary Institute of America

Hudson Valley Attractions

There’s no place like home in the Hudson Valley, where you can visit grand historic mansions up and down the river. The hauntingly beautiful landscapes have inspired artists, writers and presidents. Take in sweeping views from the world’s longest pedestrian bridge and state parks offering year-round adventures. Journey through military history at West Point, browse the galleries in quaint river towns, or hunt for bargains at Woodbury Common.

Future top chefs source nearby farms to create masterpieces at the Culinary Institute of America. Taste local flavor at Angry Orchard’s cider house or Harney’s tea room. Rev up your trip with a visit to the motorcycle museum or rough it up rock-climbing in the Shawangunks. Unique places to stay include mountaintop resorts and the 1869 Saugerties Lighthouse, now a B&B providing bird’s eye views of the Hudson and occasional eagle sightings.
