Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome

The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is a true “living” museum of antique aviation located in the historic town of Rhinebeck, New York. We present one of the largest collections of early aeroplanes in the world, as well as automobiles, motorcycles, early engines and memorabilia spanning the period from 1900-1939. During our exciting weekend air shows, the Aerodrome turns back the hands of time and relives the early years of aviation (weather permitting). This colorful era is brought back to life amidst the roar of rotary engines and is great entertainment for all ages. The Saturday shows chronicle the history of flight with pioneer, World War I and Lindbergh era aircraft taking to the skies. If the winds are calm you will even see our 1909 Bleriot (the oldest flying aircraft in the United States) take to the air. The Sunday shows feature a World War I dogfight as well as barnstorming aircraft. In addition to weekend aerial demonstrations, the Aerodrome also offers four museum buildings housing static displays of aircraft from the pioneer, World War I and Lindbergh/barnstorming eras which are open to the public seven days a week from May to October.

Hard to find such a unique experience. Great for flight enthusiasts and kids of all ages. Air show combines comedy with history. There is plenty of room to sit and move around. You can see early flight aircraft upfront. A visit to the museum is a must. There is good food for purchase and kids can roam worry free. Other activities nearby including apple picking restaurants and views of Hudson Valley communities.

Montgomery Place

Montgomery Place, a serene reflection of nearly 200 years of continuous family stewardship, is best known as a landscape influenced by the great Andrew Jackson Downing and an architectural landmark designed by Alexander Jackson Davis. But the totality of the estate - house, gardens, arboretum, woodlands, orchards, hamlet, and natural features - makes it a unique American treasure.The 380-acre property is an amazingly intact example of Hudson Valley estate life. Each of the estate's features has a story to tell about changing American attitudes toward nature, landscape, and home design over time.

We visited Montgomery Place in late fall and thus the leaves were down and while perhaps not as lovely as in the spring, the barrenness of the trees afforded a wonderful view of the Hudson River from all areas around the building. Wonderful walkways, formally laid out gardens and the mansion itself make for an interesting couple of hours. We were there on a day when the mansion itself was not open, but you can look inside through the wonderful large old glass windows all around. Of note are the massive tall locust trees along the driveway and close around the house. We were visiting relatives in the area and they brought us here for a walk. Although not mentioned in any brochures, one relative said he had heard that the locust trees were planted not only for the landscaping affect but also to draw lightning as they tower above the roof of the building. Whether true or not, the trees are magnificent to behold and appear to be well over 100 years in age. Many are split and show signs of significant wear and tear over the ages. The mansion itself is proportioned so well and although massive and built of stone with stucco exterior, it is inviting and warm looking. There are porticos on each end and the one to the north is outfitted with a table and several chairs on which I could picture the early owners sitting and having cocktails in the evening and watching the sun set over the Hudson. Two other interesting buildings, of several on the property, are the coach house and the greenhouse. Our relatives recalled when they were children and the coach house was used as the home of a caretaker. They used to come and play with the caretakers children in and around the grounds of the mansion. The greenhouse was full of potted large shrubs and flowers being kept there for over winter when we visited. The herb garden just to the west of the greenhouse was full of late fall herbs and some late hanging on flowers. It is wonderful that Bard College recently bought Montgomery Place and has it open to the public for free.

Lighthouse

Reviewed By GreyPoundLondon - London

The Saugerties Lighthouse is positioned at the edge of the Hudson River and just about as near as you can get without stepping in. Park the car and walk through the woods to the Lighthouse. There are places to stop and have a picnic including at the lighthouse itself. We were particularly lucky when we visited because a large ship passed by and also because we met the relief caretaker of the lighthouse whose interesting conversation added much to the day. We would have loved to stay in the lighthouse which is run as a B&B but reservations have to be made ages in advance. Although the lighthouse itself is private, there are tables and benches for casual visitors to sit and enjoy a picnic while watching the river flow past.

Opus 40

This sculpture park was intended to house the works of the designer, but the setting itself became the artist's masterwork. It is possible to visit by appointment on non-open days.

Reviewed By CSSnowshoer - New York City, New York

You don't have to be a kid to enjoy this place. Its wonderful to just wander around, up and down and around. I went on a beautiful day and was unrushed. That is definitely the best way to visit. Don't go if you have three other things to do, because then you won't relax. And its a long twisty drive to get there.
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
I loved the stonework, and all the artwork around the edges.
Do watch the video in the office.

Popped into Tousey Winery on whim-- the wine was excellent but the experience was made even better by Maria. Aside from being knowledgeable on the wine, she was extremely friendly and humorous. It made the experience that much better. Would definitely recommend to friends, and would return in the future.

Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts

Reviewed By jjctraveler - Chesterfield, MO

The Fisher Center is just a quick stop off Route 9 and you get to see a fantastic Frank Gehry building, if only from the outside. Across the street is the Olafur Eliasson art installation called the Parliament of reality. It is an interesting bridge to an island with boulders. It's all free, parking was easy and it was a nice little stop on my vacation. They have tours, but you must call in advance, check their web site for details. (I was unable to take a tour unfortunately)
