How lucky are we to have the historic site of the 1969 Woodstock here in the Hudson Valley? Not only do we have access to a jam-packed concert schedule each year, but Bethel Woods Center for the Arts also offers several other attractions that have become yearly transitions for many in the area.

I know, I know - we're less than a week into summer and here we are already talking about the holiday season and fall and winter events.

Nonetheless, it's never too early to start thinking about family friendly activities that will be happening this fall and winter.
