Upper Hudson Valley Activities
These large farms are also part of the structure of the Upper Hudson Valley, the region's pasoral part. Much of the scenery was simply beautiful, perfectly complementing the Hudson River Painter and Shaker schools, which founded one of their biggest municipalities in the area just south of Hudson, near Chatham; today there is an outstanding collection of museums and a collection of Shaker heritage in this part of the valley.
Revitalising cities in this once great and later run-down area was a battle, but has now established itself in several communities along the Upper Hudson. Most famous is the small town of Hudson, which has burst as an artistic and antique holiday resort, but the small and modest Tivoli, hidden on the eastern banks of the river, has evolved its own vibrant gastronomic world.
