The Hudson Valley may be known for all of its rich history and undeniably beautiful views during all four seasons but residents can also agree that it's known for so much more than that.

Whether the stores and restaurants were chains or local, they left a positive impression on those who enjoyed them at some time in the past.

It may have been somewhere that you used to go as a child or somewhere that you went when you were older. Somewhere your parents would always take you, or a frequently visited place with your friends. Whatever the occasion, these establishments are sorely missed by many in the Hudson Valley.
