There are a lot of charming small towns to explore in the Hudson Valley of New York, but if you are looking for a great summer day trip in the Hudson Valley, Kingston should be at the top of your list. It’s small, approachable town by the river that is nonetheless packed with all sorts of great culture and history—it was even the first capital of New York, way back in 1777. If you want to know more about the town, keep reading below.
Kingston is a fun and arty New York getaway, and it’s especially great in the summer. But don’t take our word for it. Make the trip and find out for yourself. And while you are in Kingston, you should consider dining at the historic Hoffman House, which was built all the way back in 1679. And if you feel like going to a book store where you can also have a drink or two, Kingston is the home of Rough Draft Bar & Books. And if you need a place to stay while you are in town, we recommend the Hampton Inn Kingston.
