Poughkeepsie, NY, USA
My mother once told me the Poughkeepsie Station - which now services Metro-North and Amtrak - was the model for New York's Grand Central Terminal. While Poughkeepsie's isn't as grand, it sure is a small and beautiful building that welcomes you to...
2015 U.S. 9, Garrison, NY 10524, USA
Valley, The Garrison’s farm-to-table restaurant, serves some of the Hudson Valley’s most innovative cuisine and has views to die for. My perfect evening started on the terrace of the World’s End Bar (named for a dangerous curve in the river) where...

A historic New York state resort, Mohonk Mountain House first opened in 1869 in the Hudson Valley, about 90 miles from New York City. This Victorian castle has welcomed five U.S. presidents (including Bill Clinton) in addition to countless...
25 S Partition St, Saugerties, NY 12477, USA
If a picture paints a thousand words I think this one really says it. After a long drive from the Syracuse area to the Hudson Valley I was ready to relax and unwind. Diamond Mills was the perfect place! It's all about creating a luxurious guest...

The New York Botanical Garden in The Bronx is New York's preeminent horticultural destination. And while the grounds are pretty, and the Bronx River woodlands are peaceful, there's another garden in The Bronx with even better scenery. Wave Hill...
Woodstock, NY, USA
About forty minutes after you start Overlook Mountain trail in Woodstock suddenly without any warning the ruins of Overlook Mountain House rise in their most haunted and cryptic look in front of you. Only four outer walls and main staircases of...

We were heading to Clarence Fahnestock National Park to do some camping and on our way we discovered Brasserie Le Bouchon in Cold Spring, NY. We decided to have lunch here before heading into the woods to do some hiking and camping. Cold Spring is...
1000 NY-23, Craryville, NY 12521, USA
It's perfectly normal to have an affinity towards things from our pasts. But, what if it's a past we never got to experience? Maybe that makes us love it more? I assume that is the case with my love for diners. And this place in particular....
14 Market St, Cold Spring, NY 10516, USA
As the Hudson river snaked around Constitution Island, 55 miles north of Manhattan, I imagined that I was an intrepid sailor on a Dutch East India company vessel sailing around the bend 400 years ago. But not for long. As waves lashed around me I...
1411 NY-212, Saugerties, NY 12477, USA
Being a newcomer to Woodstock, NY, I was constantly being amazed by the authenticity of the place. From the people, to the food, to the environment itself, everything is so real in Woodstock. So when I sat down to dine at what the locals call...
Kalorrouma 731 00, Greece
Crystal clear waters, remote access, and cliff diving. Seitan Limania is a spot known only to locals and the few U.S. military that transit the nearby naval flight line. The view is absolutely gorgeous. This is a once-in-a-lifetime beach. Access...
