There are so many hidden gems within the Hudson Valley. Each town has local, special shops that make you feel right at home.

In the Hudson Valley, new businesses have already opened their doors while others are opening soon.


From new restaurants to unique shops and more, there's so much to see.

A new French Mediterranean restaurant called Lady has opened in Montgomery.

Also, Corey's Pickles, Strada Grill and 88 Charles Street Restaurant have also opened their doors in the same area.

A European style café called Diplomat Café opened in Goshen and a new restaurant called Monarca Cantina opened in Monroe.

It's wonderful to see the Hudson Valley growing and expanding, bringing new, local businesses to our area and favorite towns.

I love traveling to different states but there is always something new popping up in the Hudson Valley which makes it cool to experience local things. This makes it exciting to plan a day trip to a little town and explore everything that it has to offer.
