Columbia County: Things To Do

Columbia County, NY sits firmly between the majestic Hudson River and the Berkshire’s Taconic Range. Just two hours from both New York City and Boston, it can be the perfect weekend retreat, wedding destination or vacation spot. And for a lucky few, only about 62,000 of us, it is home.

Our Hudson Valley location combines culture, recreation and beauty. When you become a resident, you have access to an enormous variety of music, theatre and dance venues. For the history buff, we have state and national historic sites all around. Foodies, we love you too. Columbia County has an outstanding collection of vineyards, breweries and distilleries, as well as farm-to-table restaurants, chef-owned establishments, iconic diners, and neighborhood favorites. Day or night, midweek or weekend, any season, you can take advantage of all the area has to over, or just kick back and relax.
