During the 1800s, Newburgh was known for being an important stop and route for shipping and trading. The George Washington's Headquarters State Historic Site can also be found in this town. There's much more history in Newburgh than what is known. If anything, the restaurants, nightlife, and bars bring the name to this very town. Recently, a well-known taco spot has gained popularity called Hudson Taco. If you would prefer fine dining with a view of the waterfront, visit Blue Pointe. For casual dinner, drinks, dancing and nightlife, visit the following.

Dating back to the 1600s, there's so much history within this town. During the 1700s, Kingston was known for being the first state capital. With its ever-growing population, there's so much to see and do here. From historical markers to explore and learn about, to visiting the one-of-a-kind, locally-owned boutiques and choosing from a large selection of eateries, you won't get bored. If you're in the mood for Mexican, stop by Mole Mole. On the other hand, if Italian food is calling your name, be sure to stop by any of Savona's locations. For a more formal dinner, Mariner's Harbor won't disappoint.

There's something inviting and exciting about this town. Some refer to Beacon as a "Mini Manhattan''. Others appreciate the hipster feel to it. From upscale dining options to fun bars, unique boutiques, and views of the mountains, there's something for everyone. If you're dining in Beacon be sure to visit some of my favorites. The Roundhouse for a more formal dinner, Melzingah's for a laid back and casual dining experience, and Brothers Trattoria if you're in the mood for Italian food.
