Visit the Hudson’s bohemian side to savor local food, wines, and whiskey–and explore natural open spaces with an abundance of outdoor adventures. It’s all just 90 minutes from New York City. There’s enough here to keep you busy for a week, but if you have only one night in the area like we did at Buttermilk Falls, here are a few highlights of what to do…
Brunch at the Village Tea Room
Tour and tasting at Tuthillown Spirits (unless whiskey’s not your thing… in that case, check out the Shawangunk wine trail)
Stroll through New Paltz: Don’t miss a coffee at the Mudd Puddle and a stroll through the Water Street Market
Bike or hike the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail
Explore Rosendale (Insider tip: a brand new hotel just opened there this weekend… more to come on that)
