As we approach the last month of 2023, we may be reflecting on this past year. Hudson Valley businesses have opened and expanded within this year.

An Ulster County, NY popular business has opened its second location in Uptown Kingston while a new wellness resort has opened its doors in Sullivan County. A former Kingston bowling alley transformed into an incredible space featuring a 40+ vendor mecca.

Other Hudson Valley businesses continue to open, expand and grow within the Hudson Valley.

Eat Your Way Through The Hudson Valley With The Best Ice Cream

I have always enjoyed stopping by my favorite local ice cream shops and choosing a new flavor. Whether it's a hot fudge sundae, chocolate peanut butter ice cream in a cone, or an ice cream sandwich, count me in.

The Hudson Valley has strange ice cream flavors. From lemon poppyseed to thai iced tea and barn boots, there aren't any boring flavors in our area.

A 'Premiere' Hudson Valley treat shop was expanding their space during the winter months to prepare for a busy summer season.

Thankfully, we have a large selection of local ice cream shops to visit in the Hudson Valley.
