We just noticed a good article from About.com’s “honeymoons” section on romantic train rides. Included in the story is a mention for The Hudson Valley…
In case you weren’t aware, the Hudson Valley is very accessible by train, and the views of the river and the small towns along the rail lines are really great.
Here are some useful links for planning a train ride up the Hudson Valley.
