Hands down, my favorite grocery store. This place is magic! Super fresh produce and meats, a really superb selection. They do not sell alcohol, and you do need to shop the old-fashioned way, in-person, with a cart.

Breakneck Ridge (3.7 mile loop, Difficulty: 10 out of 10): The most popular hiking trail in the region is about 10 minutes away driving. Can be crowded and challenging at points (lots of rock scrambling) but offers some insane views!

Hike Mount Beacon (2.4, 4.4 or 7.7 miles, Difficulty: 5, 7 or 10 depending on how far you go): The address is at Bob’s Corner Store, 640 Wolcott Avenue, if you have Google Maps. If you can’t find it from there, just ask the guy at the shop. It’s a 15-minute walk away and a GREAT and challenging uphill hike. Especially if you make it to the top of the fire tower. If you’re particularly brave, the trail connects to the larger Hudson Highlands trail network, for some serious hiking.

Fishkill Ridge (4.4 miles up and back, 9 out of 10): This one connects to Mt. Beacon, but begins a bit more flat/wooded (great if the intense uphill of Mt. Beacon is a bit much for you). Its trailhead is a bit hidden. Google Maps for “Pocket Rd” in Beacon and walk to the end of this very short road and keep going. You’ll pass what looks like a giant storage cylinder of some sort, and the trail begins.

•Walkway on the Hudson: If you drive up to Poughkeepsie, an old rail bridge has been turned into a crazy-high pedestrian bridge that completely crosses the Hudson River.
