Locally, when people talk about the CIA, they don’t mean spies, they mean chefs! We are about half an hour’s drive from one of the world’s most prestigious cooking schools, so it’s no surprise there’s so much excellent food to be had in the Hudson Valley. If you make dinner reservations at the CIA, you can sample cuisine prepared by the next generation of celebrity chefs--before they become famous. There are French, Italian and New American restaurants to choose from, none of which is cheap. However, when classes are in session, you can actually walk right in and eat in the student dining hall, which overlooks the Hudson River, for a fraction of the price of their famous restaurants. If you want to try this, make sure to check the academic calendar online first, though!

The Hudson Valley’s most unique state park, the Walkway crosses the river atop the former Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge. The views from this car-free bridge are incredible and easily accessible by foot or bike. When originally opened in 1888, the 6,768-foot span was considered the world’s longest bridge and an engineering marvel. Walkway Over the Hudson is is the longest elevated pedestrian bridge in the world!

The first presidential library was planned and designed by Roosevelt in the Dutch Colonial style and houses his official papers, books, and other memorabilia, as well as the papers of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. The library’s study was the scene of several of the president’s popular “fireside chats.” It remains as it was when FDR used it during his third and fourth terms. Museum exhibits focus on all aspects of FDR’s life, from his boyhood through his presidency, including the desk he used in the Oval Office, and his 1936 Ford Phaeton. Additional exhibits trace the life and accomplishments of Eleanor Roosevelt.
