Orange County, New York is home to the picturesque semi-rural life you've been dreaming about. Located just over an hour from New York City, Orange County boasts numerous towns, cities, and communities with lots of charm. Ranging from the Newburgh area, full of important state history, to Middletown, where you can shop til you drop, or any number of small rural hamlets, Orange County is sure to provide the life you are looking for.
The Hudson Valley is one of the most beautiful places in this country, and is teeming with excellent outdoors activities all year long. Down at the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, residents and visitors alike kayak, canoe, fish, swim and hike in the gorgeous scenery. Take a day trip up to the Shawangunk Ridge--"The Gunks" to regulars--for some of the best rock climbing in the whole country. People travel from far and wide for the chance to climb here. Whether you're a rock climbing pro or just want to try it out, The Gunks are the place to be. Plus, just a little further north, and the mountains become excellent ski and snowboarding slopes for the long winter months.
There really is something for everyone here. Over near Newburgh, the Brotherhood Winery is a must see. It is the oldest winery in America. With such a long standing wine-making tradition, you know the wine has great flavor and that the winery itself has tons of charm. If you want to make a day of wine tasting, nearby Dutchess County has a great wine trail, as does Pennsylvania to the south. A great thing about Orange County is that all your shopping needs are covered. Head over to the Galleria at Crystal Run in Middletown or down to the Woodbury Commons Premium Outlet Mall. If you can't find what you're looking for still, you can always take the train into New York City for some world-class designer shopping.
