I have heard it said from other locals that this is the best restaurant in Beacon (or even in the Hudson Valley). My experiences there have been solid if not amazing.

One of the best restaurants in Beacon for food. Small indoor dining area (can be crowded on big nights). They also have a lovely outdoor seating area in the back, which is particularly good for brunch.

Slightly more upscale dining in an old bank building (you can still see the massive namesake vault behind the bar). Great for a fancier dinner or weekend brunch/lunch.

Known for it's burgers (which are great) but I'm addicted to their crispy chicken sandwich. Fairly limited menu but everything is good and they always have a few specials going. Great cocktails and super friendly service. They have a lovely patio out back.

This is quickly becoming one of Beacon's top destinations. I remember the winter it opened (2018?) when I saw a huge line of people snaking around the block - something you almost never see in Beacon, much less in the middle of winter. They specialize in "sour" beers and believe me, it has a huge following. They have some cool outdoor spaces and I believe more are due to open shortly.

Sightseeing
The Roundhouse is a cool bar, restaurant, event space and boutique hotel built in an old factory building overlooking Beacon's famous waterfall. The food is pricey and hit-or-miss on quality (in my opinion). The highlight is the amazing setting - particularly the patio in nice weather.

Dia:Beacon is what put Beacon on the map as an art and tourist destination. The museum opened in 2003 in the former home of a Nabisco box printing factory. The museum specializes in very large format art - some pieces are the size of a small house. You will definitely want to check it out if you're spending any amount of time in Beacon

Massive outdoor sculpture garden on the side of Storm King mountain. Spend hours there seeing gigantic sculptures in a super cool, meticulously landscaped, natural setting. Located across the river about 30 minutes drive from Beacon. Plan on spending a full day. If you have time it's a must see.

West Point is home to some of the most important events in US history during the Revolutionary War. If you are at all interested in this period, visiting is a must. For a special treat, go during a home football game and see the cadet review parade .

Parks & Nature
Hiking is consistently one of the top attractions in Beacon. Hudson Highlands State Park connects Beacon with nearby Fishkill, Cold Spring, Garrison, and Peekskill. There are many marked and unmarked hiking trails, all interconnected - it would take years to hike them all. This is the most popular trail head in Beacon, from which you can access the entire Hudson Highlands park.
