This section of the New York Visitors Network focuses on the Hudson Valley. The Hudson River cuts a great, sinuous path through its valley. The vistas created in the spring and summer are of deep green and river sky. In the fall the colors burst; in the winter they fade to white. The sweep of the riverscape, clouds bunched, the land flourishing, alive, unspoiled: it is the land 19th-century painters Thomas Cole, Charles Herbert Moore and Frederick Church loved. The river cities ... Catskill, Hudson, Kingston, Poughkeepsie, Beacon, Newburgh,Ossining, Peekskill...(to name a few), touch the Hudson with street and parkland. In summer, sailboats clog the marinas. In winter, iceboats flash along the river ice. All of this and more... check it out!

A similar 30-mile stretch of the east bank in Dutchess and Columbia counties has been designated a National Historic Landmark.

Tourism became a major industry as early as 1810, as elite visitors frequented the mineral water at Ballston Spa and Saratoga Springs for their health.
