When was the last time that you threw an axe? Some people claim that it helps them relieve stress while others simply think it's fun. I would imagine that throwing something would produce some sort of endorphins.

Axe throwing has become increasingly popular throughout the Hudson Valley. From events, to concerts and businesses, this sport has gained its popularity. 

The first time I ever tried axe throwing was at an event hosted by the radio station. It was a beautiful summer day and everyone was in line to try their best to throw an axe. I remember one of my colleagues and I did it at the same time and it was hilarious. This was a fun thing to experience at an event.

Last year, my friends and I ended up at a sports and game bar where we decided to then again throw axes. It was a fun competition that we can't wait to do again.

However, since its a bit chilly outside there probably aren't any axe throwing events happening. Thankfully, there are a bunch of cool spots within the Hudson Valley to get your throwing on.

Not only do these establishments allow you to give it your best shot but they have other activities to take part in as well. 

Check out these top 3 indoor axe throwing places in the Hudson Valley.
