Once you get a chance to escape Westchester for the day, it becomes a whole different world. If you haven't traveled the Taconic Northbound then you have missed some beautiful sights that are found in the beautiful Hudson Valley. Upon meeting some clients we brushed the outskirts of Kingston into the beautiful town of Esopus, New York. A sleepy Hudson Valley town with just over 9,000 residents at the 2010 census, bordered on three of its sides by water this makes Esopus an outdoor adventurers dreams come true. Many times growing up we visited the Town Tinker to tube the Esopus Creek in a town called Phoenicia. Be sure to check their website for dam release dates if you are not looking for a more wild ride.
While in Esopus you can visit the Esopus Meadows Lighthouse which was built in 1871 to warn mariners of the mud flats below. This is an on going restoration so be sure to check the times of public tours. Shaupeneak Ridge is a great destination for hiking, mountain biking,fishing, bird watching and cross country skiing. This is also the site of the Annual Spring Sprint 5K race. With 9 miles of scenic trails keep your eyes open for beaver, deer, coyotes and turkeys as well as stunning rock formations and a waterfall.
If this is calling your name then you will be happy to know that there are currently some houses on the market in Esopus and the median sale price over the last ten months is $302,338 making this a great area to get your weekend retreat!
