Hudson Valley Vicinity & Attractions: New York City's Playground
by William (Bill) C. McElroy (Author)- Kindle Edition / Paperback Edition
There are many websites on the Internet that provide a look at all that the
Hudson Valley has to offer, but most only have a few of the attractions, and
these are the attractions that paid to be on each website, or are used as ‘bait’
to attract the viewer to other advertising.
This touring guide to the Hudson Valley may be the most complete guide you will ever find as it does NOT depend on advertisers, and contains no paid advertising. The author’s prime goal is to educate you to the abundant opportunities to visit and learn about in one of the more exciting locations in our history, a history that dates back hundreds of years.
The touring guide also presents to the reader the dozens of outdoor recreational opportunities for skiing, hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, camping, and RV camping by providing names and addresses with GPS location of places to seek.
For those that like to party, the author includes the Hudson Valley vineyards and wineries that have become an east coast challenge to California’s Napa Valley.
William (Bill) C. McElroy lived in the Hudson Valley from 1944 to 1956, and again off an on in the 1959 to 1980 era. His parents lived there for decades until the 2010 period, and he and his parents frequently visited the various historic, nature made, and other man-made attractions. His knowledge of the area includes personal history of many of the attractions and how each has changed over the decades. As an example how Gertie’s Nose was named, and how the name was eventually changed to the Gunks.
Ordering this e-book will provide you the name, address, GPS coordinate, and estimated time to allocate in each location. It shows you a photo of the attraction and provides you with pertinent data for making a decision to put the location on your 'to-visit list'. Each title (place name) can be further researched by entering it into a Google tm search box; and this is recommended as open and closing dates and times can vary greatly for many establishments. Note that many are NOT open during the June, July, August 100+ degree Monsoon months.
You can go to several auto clubs to have them outline a 'vacation' for you, but you should know that they frequently OMIT interesting sights, or only provide information on sites that have paid to be displayed, or sites where they get a 'finder's fee'. They also do not provide tips and warnings about the roads and other hazards. This author does not do any of that; his only compensation is from the Amazon.com commission schedule. He provides tips and warns of hazards that he as personally encountered in his visits to the locations.
