National Geographic Traveler has proclaimed the region as ONE OF THE TOP 20 DESTINATIONS IN THE WORLD for 2013. Designated as a National Heritage Area, the valley is steeped in history, natural beauty, culture and a burgeoning food and farmer’s market scene. Among many attributes, it’s the oldest wine producing area in the country, and the magnificent scenery inspired artists whose works became the Hudson River School of Painters.
