     Historic Cold Spring-on-Hudson, on the banks of New York's Hudson River in Putnam County, has been welcoming visitors since the 1770s. That's when local legend says that George Washington enjoyed a drink from our "cold spring." The name fit, and a tradition of hospitality was born.

    Today, our visitors continue to find relaxation. Just one hour and 100 years from New York City, Cold Spring and neighboring Garrison are havens from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

    Our landmark Main Street district is lined with 19th Century storefronts made for leisurely shopping and strolling. Antiques shops are filled to the brim with antiques and collectibles. Unique specialty shops showcase whimsical gifts, colorful home accessories and stylish clothing and jewelry. Or browse galleries and gardens, tour museums, see a play or take in a concert. Soak up the sun in our riverfront parks, then watch it set behind West Point and Storm King Mountain.

    Perhaps you prefer hiking, biking, boating and kayaking. Or maybe golf is your game. The scenic Hudson River, our extensive parkland and craggy Highlands countryside offer world-class recreation year-round.

    If dining is your pleasure, our many restaurants and eateries have treats in store. Your choices range from great burgers, pizza and ice cream to regional French, Italian, Mexican and New American cuisine. Several charming Bed & Breakfast inns offer lodging for mid-week getaways or restorative long weekends.

    Whether you seek an entertaining day-trip, a romantic getaway or a country home for an inspiring exploration of the Hudson Valley, we look forward to sharing our village with you. We hope to welcome you again and again.
