There’s still time for summertime exploring in the Hudson Valley! Get outside and explore Poughkeepsie today.

Poughkeepsie is not just the city of Poughkeepsie, it’s the town of Poughkeepsie too and there’s tons of fun things for you and your family to do. Let’s start with the most kid-friendly place in the Hudson Valley –

The Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum.

Go visit soon because the Children’s Museum will be closed for renovations from September 8th thru September 11th. Tickets are $8 for adults and children too. There’s a snack area but no food is served so feel free to bring your own snacks and juice boxes. While you are there make sure you check out the Hyde Park Mastodon!

The Walkway Over the Hudson.


Take a walk or a bike ride on the longest elevated pedestrian bridge in the world! There’s 1.28 miles of beautiful Hudson River scenery and benches to sit down on too. The Walkway is accessible in Poughkeepsie and Highland.

Empire Cruise Lines

Take a cruise on the Hudson River with your family! There are few things in the Hudson Valley that are as gorgeous as a Hudson river cruise. You can take a family cruise during the day or leave the little one’s with a sitter and take a romantic dinner cruise. Cruises leave from the Poughkeepsie waterfront. Make sure you purchase your tickets online, you’ll be charged $5 more per person if you purchase the tickets on site.
