Just thirty minutes from Poughkeepsie in the Hudson River Valley sits the city of Beacon, situated just across the Hudson from its sister city, Newburgh. It is a gateway town to the Canopus Beach Complex, a popular lakeside beach destination, and to Hudson Highlands State Park. Walk to the top of Breakneck Ridge where you can catch a breathtaking view of the Hudson, Pollepel Island, and the abandoned military fortification there called Bannerman`s Castle. Beacon is an up-and-coming artists’ community that has risen from the ruins of industrial decay, with Main Street at its heart. Near to the Hudson river and scenic Highlands, this is a great destination for arty and outdoorsy types.
