Have you ever passed through or visited a small town that reminded you of a scene out of a movie? This was my exact reaction when I found this village.

It truly felt like something out of a Hallmark Channel movie with the friendly residents chatting with each other in front of a church on a warm and sunny day. There was a local diner, deli, plenty of shops and a trail.

My sister and I spent a few hours exploring this hidden gem within the Hudson Valley. The drive there was simply beautiful with all of the fields and scenery.

Millertown, New York is located in Dutchess County. I found plenty of fun things to do and explore while there.

Here are 5 reasons to visit this picturesque Hudson Valley Town.

Harney & Sons Fine Teas

I first found out that Harney & Sons had their own tea house a few months back. My mom brought this to my attention so we made the trip there. On site, you can choose from hundreds of different tea styles and shop in their store. My favorite from their collection is their green tea.

Harlem Valley Rail Trail

I love coming across random trails with history. As I left Harney & Sons, I saw a historic sign and had to check it out. It shows the extensive amount of history that took place right on site. The trails are paved and perfect for walking, jogging and biking. There were alot of smiling faces on this trail.

Boutiques on Main Street

I joke around that window shopping is my cardio but it truly is. Its very relaxing to stroll around a brand new town and come across neat shops. These locally owned businesses have a wide variety of gifts for everyone. This is the perfect place to grab a gift for birthdays, holidays and special occasions.

The Moviehouse

When was the last time you went and saw a movie? To be honest, I cannot remember when I attended a movie besides the drive-ins. Not only do you get to choose from a movie, be sure to take a peep at the local art that is displayed on site. Let me know what movie you choose when you visit Millerton.

Oakhurst Diner

Nothing feels more at home than eating at a diner. In a small town, the staff always make the setting welcoming and having delicious, warm food really does the trick. Oakhurst Diner has healthier options with more organic choices. Many of the ingredients are locally sourced from our area. The avocado toast is making my mouth water just from pictures.
