The Hudson River cuts through some of the nation's most spectacular countryside. Spanning 120 miles, reaching from Westchester County to Dutchess County to Columbia County, the Hudson Valley has been called the "Rhine of the Americas."

It's no wonder that notables from the wealthy Rockefellers to U.S. presidents and statesmen have called the valley home. In fact, the area contains the largest concentration of historic sites in the country. The Hudson River School of painting centered around the picturesque region. Inspired by their surroundings, artists like Thomas Cole and Jasper Cropsey viewed the uniquely American landscape as muse.  A visit to the Hudson Valley is the perfect change of pace for city-dwellers with little time to spare—many towns are less than an hour from NYC!

And the area is also well-suited to the more leisurely traveler, as there are literally hundreds of things to do and see in the region. Whether you're looking for a slice of history, love antiquing, or are an outdoor enthusiast, the Hudson Valley has you covered. From the Sleepy Hollow region just north of the Bronx to the great estates of the upper valley, you're bound to find something to suit you.
