Founded by the Marc and Livia Straus family, the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art strives to present interdisciplinary programs that enrich the community through many forms of contemporary art. Works from renowned and emerging contemporary artists share the Center's 12,000-square feet of exhibition space with a variety of long-term installations, several made by participants in the nonprofit’s artist in residence program. The HVCCA supplies artists with studio space, living quarters, and an extended stipend in order to foster creative work on-site and engage in an active discussion with visitors or talkative muses. Special events range from panel discussions and film screenings to a monthly family art day with lessons for parents and kids based on current exhibits. The Center has also organized special projects including the Banner Project, where artists mentor more than 300 youth in creating a large-scale installation, and the Public Tile Project, where 2,000 students design tiles that for a trail from Peekskill Train Station to the Center.

In the middle of the floor, surrounded by 150 blinking and dinging arcade games, a 24-foot rock-climbing wall stretches to the ceiling. That's how jam-packed Sportime USA is with attractions. As if all those games weren't enough, there's the XD theater?a 4-D virtual ride that combines 3-D movies with specialized motion seats. Neon-lit laser tag continues the tech trend, and bumper cars and roller coasters provide old-fashioned fun. Batting cages, billiards, and a multilevel playground are only a few of the other attractions ready to entertain families and friends of all ages.

Opened in 1924, the Lafayette Theatre first ushered filmgoers into the swashbuckling world of the French Revolution with the silent classic Scaramouche. And the movie palace, which is appointed with a grandiose French and Italian Renaissance style, has remained a Suffern touchstone by introducing 3D technology, CinemaScope, and, in the late 1980s, the Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ. These days, jaunty organ tunes precede Friday- and Saturday-night features inside the renovated, single-screen theater, which specializes in first-run Hollywood flicks and classic cinema. One of the "great places to revel in cinematic grandeur," according to USA Today, the 942-seat theater surrounds visitors with ornate touches like a crystal chandelier, a red velvet curtain, and opera booths sans distracting Muppets.

When visitors mount a horse at Cimarron Ranch, they not only stand at the heads scenic trails—they also ride in the wake of horsemen such as Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. The ranch dates back to the 1930s, when it regularly hosted stage and screen legends as they vacationed. Over the decades, the resort’s main attractions have remained the same as back then: idyllic scenery, a commitment to the art of horsemanship, and a complete lack of damsels in distress. Amid the 450-acre facility, riders learn both English and Western styles within a lighted outdoor arena or a vast array of trails, studying proper horsemanship and riding essentials under the tutelage of certified instructors.

Despite its sprawling floor plan measuring 3,000 square feet, Jumpin’ Jeepers still offers unfettered sightlines for parents to keep track of youngsters as they whiz down slides or hoist themselves up the facility's two-story mesh and plastic play structure. Youths develop social skills as they play together, donning whimsical dress-up clothes or crawling through the play structure's maze-like tunnels. Tinier tots can bound about in age-specific areas stocked with scaled-down apparatuses. And guardians relax at the onsite café, which boasts organic snacks and obviously inorganic WiFi.
