The new Diamond Mills Hotel & Tavern in Saugerties is a luxury boutique hotel overlooking the falls of the Esopus Creek and just a few blocks from this quaint village’s bustling shopping district. With Krause’s Chocolates and the Orpheum movie theater nearby and an eclectic mix of antique stores, designer clothing (check out DIG), bookstores (Inquiring Mind Bookstore & Café), eateries, live music (Dave’s Coffee & Wine House), and more, it’s an interesting and fun community to explore.
Callicoon’s indoor Farmers’ Market is open February 3 and 17, and March 3 and 17.

Gilded Otter Brewing Company in New Paltz is a great place to have a meal, take in some live entertainment and tour a small local brewery.

The Village Tea Room has a menu that’s uniquely seasonal, with tasty homemade baked goods too.
