Travel: Hudson, NY

Hudson, NY - dubbed as the trendiest town in New York State, we just had to go check it out. With easy train connections, a plethora of antique stores, hip cocktail bars and a serious farm to table dining culture, it's not a wonder that Hudson is a firm favourite weekend destination for New Yorkers. 

A weekend in Hudson, here we come...

The boys and I took the Amtrak out of Penn station on a Friday lunchtime with Mr. J following a few hours later. This was by far the easiest way to go from NYC. In a little over 2 hours, we arrived upstate in Hudson. Our home for the weekend was WM Farmers and Sons - a rustic chic bar offering farm-to-table dining and charming rooms to stay. We opted to stay in the two bedroom suite - The Pennington, located in the main building. The boys were over the moon with having their own bedroom and the teddy bear gifts left by the owners for them was such a lovely welcome. 

With bags dropped off, we headed out to explore Warren Street. The street is lined with furniture and antique stores. I must admit, we spent most of this weekend eating our way through Hudson, starting in the dining room at WM Farmer and Sons. We sampled a mix of plates to share with the boys from Burgundy snails to arancini and finishing with the most divine apple crumble dessert. It was so good, we immediately ordered another as we dived into the first. With a cocktail in hand, we meandered back upstairs to our suite and settled in for the evening. 

The next morning, we headed to Warren Street in search of breakfast and stumbled upon Le Perche. A delightful French style bakery restaurant.

To walk off our breakfast, we visited the FASNY Museum of Firefighting. This is a must for any fire truck fans, the museum itself houses a thousands of firefighting artifacts collecting from various periods in history. The boys enjoyed seeing the different fire engines and the play area.
