Only an hour away from the Heart of New York City, the Hudson Valley  is a Must-See. Since Henry Hudson first sailed his namesake river in 1609, the Hudson Valley has attracted a long list of remarkable people that includes presidents, inventors, industrialists, military and religious leaders, activists, artists, and authors – who shaped its history and that of the United States. Originally colonized by the Dutch and now designated as a National Heritage Area, the Hudson Valley region is steeped in history and culture.

Named by National Geographic Traveler as one of the top 20 'must-see' destinations in the world,
the valley’s stunning scenescapes inspired artists whose works became the Hudson River School of Painters. Recognized for its award-winning wineries, breweries and a burgeoning food and farmer’s market scene, the Hudson Valley is home to the oldest wine-producing area in the country, with the first vineyards planted near the town of New Paltz  in 1677.
