What do you love the most about the Hudson Valley?


However, if you were to ask people what they loved about the Hudson Valley, I would think their answers would be different. Some enjoy its small towns with that family feel while others embrace the lush, green scenery that can be found anywhere.

I enjoy almost everything about the Hudson Valley besides the winter season. The views, nature trails, historic sites, close proximity to other towns and New York City are just a few of the many reasons I love where we reside.

Along with being in nature, being at the beach is also something that I love. The Hudson Valley has numerous local beaches and public pools to enjoy.

Did you know that the Hudson Valley has a boardwalk?

Nature lovers may have missed this one. There's a boardwalk that can take those who visit through Hudson Valley wetlands.

In Ulster County, NY there's a hidden boardwalk.

High Banks Preserve is located in Ulster Park, NY.
