The Hudson River Valley in New York is rich in history, nature and fun things to do. The Hudson River, named after the explorer Henry Hudson, stretches from New York City to well past the state capital in Albany. The river region is divided up into the Upper Hudson Valley, Mid-Hudson Valley, and Lower Hudson Valley. The Lower Hudson Valley is an hour drive north of New York City. On the contrary, the Mid-Hudson Valley is approximately two hours north of the city. Within the short driving distance, there is so much to see and do year round.
Travelers are on the move and on their way to New York City. During an economic climate that has been characterized by an increase in unemployment and home foreclosures, it seems people are still hitting the roads to visit the Big Apple.
