Once a bustling center for industry along the Hudson River, the City of Poughkeepsie is going through a twenty-first century revival repurposing factory buildings as housing, eateries and art galleries. The nearby Town of Poughkeepsie is home to Vassar College, Marist College and SUNY Dutchess. Stay at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel & Conference Center, which boasts a rooftop garden and full-service restaurant. Enjoy a vibrant dining scene with choices like Essie’s Restaurant, Brasseries 292 and The Artist’s Palate. Shadows on the Hudson offers a breathtaking waterfront dining experience. Bring the kids to the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum for interactive exhibits and programs that focus on art, literacy, science, health and the local community. For unmatched views of the Hudson River and beyond, check out the Walkway Over the Hudson – once a vital railway crossing, now the longest elevated pedestrian bridge in the world.
