FIRST STOP FOR THE 17 HUDSONS CHALLENGE
Does history and preservation appeal to you?
**Start with a walk around the square. ( History 360)
*Wander and look up individual houses at your leisure, using the Hudson Heritage Association’s updated site. Extra fun if you schedule your visit during June’s Home and Garden show. (see Festivals below)
*Take some time to sit and study our iconic clock tower (and if you’d like a peek inside, here’s the online tour . )
Maybe you’re unique and creative.
**Visit some vintage shops to see if you can score some “finds”…or some ideas. (DarrowvilleVintage )
*Register for a cooking workshop at WRSoC.
Need a little pampering after a rough week?
**Visit one of our local spas or salons for a little “me time (2017Spa )
Anchor your day with a festival, and your planning’s done.
**Main festivals happen summer through fall. (festivals2017 )
*And every Saturday morning is Farmer’s Market day during the summer.
