Historic Site
“A National Historic Landmark District, Historic Huguenot Street encompasses 30 buildings across 10 acres at the heart of the New Paltz, NY. In 1677, a group of Huguenot families established a community in the Hudson Valley of New York in the hope of creating a home where they could worship as they chose. In 1894, their descendants formed what is now Historic Huguenot Street to protect their legacy in the buildings, objects, and stories they left behind.”

Vues pittoresques

Scenic Lookout
“It’s not about the journey with this one: It’s about the destination. You’ll walk uphill along a gravel road with power lines the entire way -- not quite the bucolic getaway you traveled all the way from the city for. But you’ll hit the first cool landmark after about 2 miles -- the ruins of an old hotel from the area’s heyday as a resort destination ). A climbable fire tower (which you should definitely scale) is a half mile further. Follow the trail a little bit longer for a jaw-dropping cliff edge view of the Catskill Mountains and Hudson Valley. Told you it was worth it.”

“One of our region's most iconic spots. Reopened in 2009, this is the world's longest elevated pedestrian bridge and spans 1.28 miles over the Hudson River from Highland to Poughkeepsie. Visitors can bring their dogs, ride bikes, or just talk a casual walk. The bridge also connects the rail trail system between Dutchess and Ulster counties. ”
