HUDSON VALLEY & LITCHFIELD COUNTY

Designated as a National Heritage Area, the valley is steeped in history, natural beauty, culture, and a burgeoning food and farmer’s market scene. Among many attributes, it’s the oldest wine-producing area in the country, and the magnificent scenery inspired artists whose works became the Hudson River School of Painters.

Lonely Planet describes the Hudson River Valley as “a real city break, with leafy drives, wineries and plenty of farm-to-table foodie options.” National Geographic Traveler named the Hudson Valley one of the top 20 must-see destinations in the world

OUTDOORS

LION'S HEAD TRAIL

Salisbury, CT

Lion's Head in Salisbury, CT might have the distinction of being the shortest hike with the greatest views in western Connecticut. Scramble up the trail on a clear day, and it'll seem like you can see the entire state. This is the perfect spot if you love overviews. Lion's Head seems to hang over the valley you hiked up from and it's a steep drop-off at the summit area so just be a little careful when you're up there.

ORVIS SANDANONA

Millbrook, NY

Reminiscent of a turn-of-the-century hunting club, Sandanona is the oldest permitted shotgun shooting club in the country, with a main lodge that was built during the presidency of Thomas Jefferson. The attractions here include a modern sporting-clays shooting ground that is consistently ranked among the very best in the nation. There is also an acclaimed Wingshooting School and a branch of the much-lauded Orvis Fly-Fishing School.
