Three and a Half Days in Hudson Valley?

Jump to last reply

DH and I decided to go for a quick getaway in October. We will be leaving Thursday evening after work and returning on Tuesday. We live in the Detroit area and I've been reading about Hudson Valley. We love history, art, and I enjoy photography, especially in the fall. It looks like there is so much to see and do! It will take about 10 hours to get there. We would probably drive 5 hours on Thursday evening, then have the remainder of the driving on Friday. That would leave the rest of the day Friday, and full days Saturday, Sunday and Monday with a long drive home on Tuesday and back to work Wednesday morning.

My question is, will that do it justice or should we save Hudson Valley for another year when we have a full week or so? If not there, then where? It was a long busy summer and I've got bit by the travel bug! I want to get away! Other options are Toronto/Niagara, a trip to the west side of Michigan and on up to the UP.....
