Walkway Over the Hudson (Poughkeepsie, NY)
The Walkway Over the Hudson is a steel cantilever bridge spanning the Hudson River between Poughkeepsie, NY and Highland, NY. Grab a soft pretzel and a bottle of water and take a leisurely stroll over the Hudson River. Stop in the middle for 360° views of the Hudson River or walk all the way to the end and back if you’re up for the exercise!

If you’re looking for a street filled with cafes, art, and unique shops, check out Main Street in Beacon! Ella’s Bella’s has the best gluten free treats you could possibly imagine (I make the drive over just for their donut holes alone). Looking for good chocolate? Check out the Alps Sweet Shop. Spirits tasting? Head on over to Denning’s Point Distillery.

Vanderbilt Mansion (Hyde Park, NY)
On Chris’s first trip up to meet my parents, we went to the Vanderbilt Mansion. The brick gardens are beautiful and it’s a perfect spot to hang out and enjoy the weather. Take a tour of the house or pack a picnic and have lunch on the grounds.
