The natural beauty of the Hudson Valley has inspired generations for centuries. It’s the birthplace of America’s first arts movement, the motherland of winemaking in America, home to America’s first culinary college, a Revolutionary War arena, and the landscape where the country’s founding families established lavish estates. The valley is dotted with quaint boutique shopping villages, spa retreats, farm markets, farm fresh eateries, and year-round festivals and events. There’s plenty of outdoor activities in the hills, on the water, or in the air, and all of it - surrounded by the stunning scenery with a Catskill Mountain backdrop. Enjoy a birds' eye view on the Walkway Over the Hudson, a former historic railroad bridge spanning over 2 kilometers across and nearly 65 meters above the Hudson River. It is the longest, elevated pedestrian bridge in the world.

The region’s most iconic figure is President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the only U.S. president elected to four terms. FDR was paralyzed by polio at age 39, led the country out of the Great Depression, and guided America through WWII. A highlight to his estate is the FDR Presidential Library & Museum. The interactive museum is the first and only presidential library used by a sitting president.
