A short ride away from New York City on the Metro North commuter rail, Poughkeepsie sits on the banks of the Hudson River! And the best time to visit this small city in the Dutchess county is during the Fall, especially during the peak 🙂 So we hopped on a train and went on a day trip to this picturesque place!!!
The culinary institute of America, 1870s Renaissance Revival storefronts along the main street, fun boutiques, historical outlook and fine dining summarise the essence of this city. But the place which stole the show was the “Walkway over the Hudson”.
The Walkway over the Hudson, at 212 feet tall and 1.28 miles long, it’s the longest, elevated pedestrian bridge in the world. Once an east-west connector for trains, it offers hikers, bikers and strollers magnificent panoramas of the Catskill Mountains, Mid-Hudson Bridge, and both shores. The views and the colors are magnificent, during the fall season. You will fall in love all with the greens, yellows, orange and red blooms, ah leaves! 😉
The beautiful sunset with golden hues along the waterfront, the glimmering and glittering orange leaves marks the perfect end to our day 🙂 No doubt Poughkeepsie is known as “The Queen city of the Hudson”!
The best and the only advice that I could give is: don’t forget your cameras!
