All there is to experience in: Beacon

Voted the “#1 Coolest Small Town in America” by Budget Travel, the City of Beacon features a picturesque, walkable main street corridor with no shortage of delicious culinary options or immersive artistic experiences. Don’t miss Dia:Beacon, a large collection of contemporary art housed in a former Nabisco box printing factory on the banks of the Hudson River – not far from the dock for the late Pete Seeger’s Sloop Clearwater, a replica of the vessels that sailed the river centuries ago. Enjoy the city’s growing craft beverage scene and sip local brews, spirits and more. Hike to the top of Mount Beacon for spectacular Hudson Valley views. Outside the city center, visit Mount Gulian Historic Site, home of the pioneering Verplanck family and the headquarters of unsung hero of the American Revolution, General Friedreich Von Steuben.
