This meetup group is for those who would like to enjoy the company of a friendly group while experiencing the natural beauty and historical and cultural sites that the Hudson Valley has to offer. We are a group who loves to be outdoors but prefer our outings slow-paced and leisurely. We go on ‘ambles’ or 'meanders' more often than we 'hike'; on the water, we 'cruise' rather than 'paddle'. This group explores parks, gardens, fairs, festivals, historical sites and quaint villages in Orange, Ulster, Dutchess, and Putnam counties and sometimes, Westchester, Northern NJ and NYC, as well. We enjoy the wonders of the Hudson River from its banks and on the water. This group appeals to the new-to-the-area, newly single, empty-nesters, or any adults over 18 who want to share great times while making new friends.
