In Cold Spring N.Y. it's all about the river. This Hudson Valley village of stunning natural beauty is home to an array of arts, culture, history and culinary attractions, all set against the majestic backdrop of the Mighty Hudson River. Downtown there are shops filled with quirk and character, European style cafes, and riverside dining opportunities. Right outside the village there are several nature trails, where intrepid hikers, wiling to work up a sweat, will be rewarded with panoramic views of the Hudson River and surrounding hills and mountains. It's a great place to explore over the course of a day, or even a weekend.
