Cruising the historic Hudson River is a unique way to view the beauty and experience the history of both the river and the country. In addition to viewing the marvelous sites as you cruise, the Hudson River gives you access to a number of activities and places to visit.
The Hudson Valley is home to some of the most visited sites in America. You won’t want to miss a tour of the US Military Academy at West Point or Olana- the home of Hudson River School Painter Frederic Church, dinner or stay at the Mohonk Mountain House, the gourmet delights of the Culinary Institute of America, or the happenings and sights of our state capital, Albany.
