Here’s why your staycation could be a better option

It’s the time of year when social media posts of sunny beaches and faraway places with your friends mugging it for the camera start to pop up. Chances are that looking at your friends wearing mouse ears, clinking glasses filled with exotic drinks and running in the sun, may make you feel like it’s time you had an adventure, too. 

Then again, traveling can be an experience, but it also can be stressful, tiring and costly. A staycation, on the other hand, could be the perfect adventure for you and your family. 

Here are the benefits:

Start planning your vacation right away
No rushing. No bag packing. No losing your patience. Simply go home and order-in, gather your family and start vacationing together. Instant gratification vacation.

Extra Time
Because there’s no travel time or running, you’re already ahead of the game and can go straight to down time. Bliss.

Easy planning
No pressure here. A few weeks before your staycation starts, look around at local events on social media and, of course, check the HVP Calendar for the best in local fun. Whether you want to hike, bike, hit the water or play in a park, there’s loads of family fun throughout the Hudson Valley.

Forget the weather
Never mind how bad weather can dampen even the most well-planned vacation. Your staycation allows you to switch ideas on the fly to match the weather – or simply enjoy the comfort of your own home with no crazy agenda.

Staycations support local business
With loads of activities for all seasons, Hudson Valley residents have a big advantage. There are indoor play spots, great places to eat, and beautiful terrain to hike and view. Pine Ridge Dude Ranch in Kerhonksen, for example, offers an all-inclusive family-friendly experience to locals who can get away for a night to enjoy indoor and outdoor activities year-round.

Start back up rested and refreshed than ever
Getting back to the work week may be a bit of a bummer, but it’s easier to step into the swing of things after relaxing, resting, and catching up on fun.

Consider a local staycation: a win for everyone
The Hudson Valley is a destination with much to offer families. Enjoy your well-earned time off to the fullest by taking in the local sights and offerings at you and your family’s pace.


Located just 90 miles from New York City, Pine Ridge Dude Ranch is set in the beautiful foothills of the Catskill Mountains in the hamlet of Kerhonkson. On this sprawling, wooded property, you’ll find your accommodations spacious and comfortable.
