A Weekend in Fishkill and Beacon, NY (With Kids)

If you’re in New York City, looking for weekend trip ideas, chances are you are typing in the words “Hudson Valley” in the Airbnb search tool. Because when you’re dealing with quarantines and restrictions that can vary by state and by day, it’s easier to stay as close to home as possible, without actually staying home. The Hudson Valley, with its picturesque, rural landscapes and farm-to-table restaurants, is far enough and different enough from the city to make it feel like you’re getting away.
