I love living in the Hudson Valley. There are so many beautiful things to see, especially in nature. It is absolutely lovely to be surrounded by mountains and the Hudson River. There are a few colleges around the area as well which keeps the atmosphere young and hip. I plan on staying in the Hudson Valley all of my life. As the years come, I believe the area will only improve. I've been all over the country yet I still love coming home to the constant beauty surrounding me here.

The area is nice and convenient. However, there are too many restaurants being built and too many fast food places.
It's boring, but it's decent.
