I've lived here for my entire life. In recent years, the art culture has gone from being somewhat stagnant to very thriving, with new events to attend constantly. If art isn't your thing, the sports events here are awesome too. The location is great, being situated right in between Kingston and Woodstock in the middle of the Hudson Valley. The Catskills are only a short drive away and they make the scenic outdoors completely stunning. We are also a very green town, with our officials focusing largely on our carbon footprint. It's pretty pricey to live here, but with the constant support the town provides to its citizens (especially local artists, storeowners, restaurant owners, etc.) it's absolutely worth it.

A small town just two hours north of New York City, Saugerties has become a hot spot for city folk looking to escape the hustle and bustle, with a relocation or a weekend home. I've been here my whole life and it's refreshing to see small businesses blossom here. The city folk are intolerable. So if you're local to the Hudson Valley but not from the city, you might be annoyed with them too. However there are so many businesses that are a delight to support. Inquiring Minds has the best coffee in town and an eclectic collection. The library is a delight and their events are open to the public, you don't need a card to attend anything. The parks are kept clean and well lit during the day. At night teenagers hang around them so not a family friendly environment. The Saugerties Diner is a great stop, lots of well priced food. Go to Kingston if you need to go grocery shopping, Price Chopper is expensive and stinks like garbage.
Saugerties is a very beautiful small town that is continuously growing. It is nestled in the heart of the Catskill Mountains along the Hudson River. In the heart of the town you will find multiple small bars, cafes, bookstores, antique shops, yoga studios, a locally operated movie theater, and more.
