Located 90 minutes north of New York City in the heart of the Hudson River Valley, Ulster County provides a respite from city life while also providing you with a jumping-off point to explore the entire Northeast. But you also don’t have to leave to enjoy the quarter-million acres of woodlands right in your backyard.
When many people think of Ulster County they think of Woodstock, the tiny town with a lasting musical legacy. But there’s plenty more going on here. New Paltz on the Hudson offers a quaint downtown and lots of outdoor opportunities. Saugerties is an antique shop haven. And the Walkway Across the Hudson gives you direct access to Dutchess County across the river. There’s so much more to explore here, from nature to food, to art, and family-friendly entertainment.
