All parents know that dining out with kids is an adventure in itself, but what parents want to know is where are the best places to take the family to eat in the Hudson Valley? Is it a fun place with outdoor seating? A hot spot with a fully-packed kids meal? Or maybe a restaurant with nightly entertainment?

Art museums, children's museums and history. We all know that it's important to keep learning at the forefront of fun throughout the year. Luckily, the Hudson Valley is sprinkled with places families can enjoy together while they learn a little something too. History. Art.  And just walkabout fun.
