Spring is such a great time to visit Dutchess County. Whether you are interested in antiquing, sports, historic landmarks, seeing what our small towns have to offer, or the natural beauty of the area, you can find it all here! Now that the weather is starting to warm up, make plans to spend some time in our neck of the woods. We’ve listed some of our favorites below – and don’t forget to stop by for a night at the Inn or a delicious dinner and say hello!
Stormville Flea Market - April 29-30
You can shop for everything at this nationally known flea market. Vendors sell antiques and collectibles, arts and crafts, and even new merchandise.
The Renegades are the High-A affiliate of the New York Yankees. Catching a game is well worth the trip, and most Friday and Saturday games end with fireworks over the stadium.
Located just 30 minutes from Curry Estate, the FDR Presidential Library and Museum is a must-see for history buffs.
If your trip to Dutchess County takes place over a weekend, make plans to stop by the town of Beacon. Not only is it a great little town with tons of shops, but every second Saturday they celebrate Beacon’s art community, restaurants and businesses. Beacon’s farmers market happens every Sunday. Their mission is to feed and engage the Beacon Community, support local farms and businesses, and create a more just food system.
This just in! The annual Dutchess Stadium Carnival will be held April 19-23. Enjoy midway games, rides, and plenty of carnival food, just like when you were a kid!
There are dozens of hiking and biking trails located within minutes of Curry Estate. Some of our favorites include Fahnestock State Park in Carmel, Mount Beacon Park, and the Appalachian Trail, which goes through Dutchess and Putnam counties. Also, the Dutchess Rail Trail runs 13 miles from Hopewell Junction to the Walkway over the Hudson in Poughkeepsie. It is part of the Empire State Trail, which Travel + Leisure Magazine recently included in “The 15 Best Rail Trails in the U.S.”
