  • Eleanor is a National Treasure. Walking thru her real house felt like witnessing history. The wide screen porch where she slept whatever the weather... The mementos and photos of course...

  • If you are in Hyde Park you must visit Val-Kill. It is a historic home and the tour is very well done.
  • Great national park beautiful buildings with very educational tours
  • One of the many places worth a visit in the hudson Valley
