Come autumn, the Hudson Valley is known for a few distinct things; picturesque foliage and stunning views of mountains draped in red, orange and golden hues, quaint small town hamlets perfect for exploring after hikes and APPLES! Our hills are dotted with these bright red and green delicacies and people travel from near and far to pluck them straight from the trees, at their absolute freshest. As if the sheer number of people traveling to our area, by the busload most weekends, isn't enough indication that the Hudson Valley has some of the best fall produce available, the number of craft cideries opening up and moving to the area is another indicator that it doesn't get any better than apple season in the valley!

It’s hard to believe it, but it feels that somehow summer has slipped through our fingers and we’re sitting here looking at the calendar in disbelief- ‘How could Labor Day weekend have come so quickly once again?’
