This Hudson Valley Town Was Nominated as One of the Best Small Towns to Visit
Some places simply feel like home. I often travel to different villages throughout the Hudson Valley that I have never been to before. It’s interesting to see how different each town is.
Some feel new and exciting while others bring a cozy and warm sense to them. If you have ever been to this town, then you know exactly what I mean.
Orange County is one of the most beautiful counties that I have visited. From hiking and biking trails to dinner on the river and endlessly wineries, it could be featured in a picture-perfect movie scene.
This Orange County town was featured in a Hallmark Channel movie.
