Planning a Hudson Valley Weekend?

Mid-September is a great time to visit.

If you’ll be attending Chefs for Clearwater on Saturday, September 14, you might want to consider coming early and staying a while. Many of us think the Mid-Hudson Valley is at its very best at that time of year, and there’s plenty to see and do. Visit Fishkill Farms to pick your own apples and pumpkins, or take the easy way out at the Hyde Park Farmers Market.  Wine-tastings are as close as the Clinton, Millbrook and Whitecliff vineyards. Stroll across the Hudson at sunset on the world’s longest pedestrian bridge in Poughkeepsie. If food is still on your mind, there are many world-class dining options across the Hudson Valley, including many that feature CIA alumni. And you’ll find many more suggestions at the Dutchess County Tourism site. Enjoy!
