Hudson Valley

Jump to last reply

We're going to be back East in late May. Thinking of heading to the Hudson Valley for a little downtime after the reason for our trip - DS and his fiance's graduation from law school followed by their wedding. I haven't been to the area in years, and then only as day trips when I was much younger (visited Hyde Park, e.g. when I was 10, and Annandale-on-Hudson when my brother was attending Bard College -- both a LONG time ago).

we like scenic drives, poking around/shopping in/soaking up the atmosphere in little/charming towns (I'm always on the lookout for crafty, handmade earrings, and a great cup of non-chain coffee), historical sites (for example, we enjoyed a visit to Appomattox and to Harpers Ferry a couple of summers ago), good food (but we're not what I would call foodies -- we don't go miles out of our way for a restaurant (because honestly, we so often are disappointed), we often sit at the bar so we can strike up a conversation with whomever else is sitting nearby, we like pubs as much as fine dining, and we definitely don't like to dress up for dinner).

We have to make our flight arrangements, so need to decide how long to add to our trip for this portion. How many days would you suggest we stay in the area?
