Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site
Stunning home and even more beautiful grounds. I believe tours are still available.call to make sure.
The grounds have spectacular views of the Hudson River and Catskills Mountains. There is a 45-50 min waking loop that is one of my favorites. The gardens are a must see in season
Highly recommend this one, you can walk or run these grounds. You can tour inside and there are many waterfront areas, plus some really cool gardens and rolling hills!
A beautiful spot along the Hudson. Whether you visit the home or not the location is worth a detour
“Beautiful Presidential library so close to home. And, Locust Grove is not that far either.”
“You can walk the grounds beautiful view one with nature. The students cook/bake all the food on campus. ”
“Take a tour of the historic Hyde Park home once inhabited by Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. Run by the National Park Service, a park ranger will guide you through the property of the former president. A $20 entrance fee will also grant you entry to the Presidential Museum and Library.”
“Eleanor Roosevelt National Historic Site was established by the U.S. Congress to commemorate the life and accomplishments of Eleanor Roosevelt. Once part of the larger Roosevelt family estate in Hyde Park, New York, today the property includes the 181 acres, buildings and other historic features that Eleanor Roosevelt called Val-Kill. It is located approximately two miles east of Springwood, the Franklin D. Roosevelt home. It is a few hundred feet east of New York State Route 9G, along which runs the Dutchess County bus route C to Tivoli.”
