Romantic Weekend Getaway in the Hudson Valley's Dutchess County
If you're looking to slip back in history while dining on contemporary fare by America's rising culinary stars, your appetite for both will be easily satisfied during a weekend in scenic Dutchess County. Stretched along the eastern side of the Hudson River Valley, and home to charming towns such as Rhinebeck, Red Hook, and Millbrook, this pastoral playground is so alluring it famously played host to First Daughter Chelsea Clinton's wedding in the summer of 2010. Rhinebeck alone has 437 National Historic Register sites, and both it and its neighboring hamlets are full of atmospheric old inns and antiques markets, as well as the childhood home of our 32nd president, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It's also the headquarters of the CIA — no, not the spy agency but rather the Culinary Institute of America, training ground of many of America's best chefs. And these are only a few reasons to dig into the Hudson Valley's offerings. Here's how to savor an entire weekend. – By Donna Heiderstadt
