Poughkeepsie Area, New York: Historic City Set in the Rolling Hills of the Hudson Valley

Highland, just minutes away from Poughkeepsie, lies about 90 minutes north of New York City, right along the banks of the Hudson River. The Hudson Valley’s gently rolling hills provide a beautiful backdrop to the town. The view is particularly nice from the Walkway Over the Hudson, a pedestrian-only bridge that connects Poughkeepsie to the hamlet of Highland across the river with a complimentary shuttle. You can also enjoy the great outdoors nearby at 22 public parks, which host art festivals and farmers’ markets during the summer.

Enjoy the area's historic landmarks, with nearly 100 listings on the National Register of Historic Places. These include numerous 19th-century brick buildings on the campus of Vassar College as well as the home and presidential library of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Locust Grove, the Italianate estate of Morse code inventor Samuel F. B. Morse. Today, the home serves as a museum and nature preserve encompassing nearly 200 acres of gardens and grounds.
