In 2013, National Geographic Traveler proclaimed the Hudson River Valley as one of the top 20 Destinations in the world. Designated as a National Heritage Area, the valley is steeped in history, natural beauty, culture, and culinary delights. The Rockefellers and Roosevelts had “cottages” here and the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) has an amazing campus with 3 restaurants that are available for your group’s luncheon or dinner needs. The spectacular views of the Hudson River are clearly visible from most attractions and certainly from West Point, the famed naval academy that also welcomes your coaches and provides an amazing tour. For a step back into history, the Hudson River Valley is a great destination on its own or combined with New York City or even enroute to or from New England.
We began our receptive coverage here in 2011, with the same passion and attention to detail that we are renowned for.
