A quote from Hudson Valley Voyage by Ted Spiegel and Reed Sparling sums up the glories of the Hudson Valley:

Variety being the spice of life, the Hudson Valley rates as a five alarm chili.  Some regions of the country may rival it architecturally.  Others boast an equally vivid history or equally dramatic landscape.  You can find great restaurants and concert halls in lots of places.  But nowhere outside the valley will you discover all of these---and so much more-in such mind-boggling profusion.
