This little city offers tourist and residents alike great spots to have fun and spend time with family like museums, landmarks, parks, sports centers, and so much more.
Nothing beats holding the hands of your loved ones and walking through the longest (and extremely narrow) pedestrian walkway in the world. The Walkway over the Hudson State Historic Park in Poughkeepsie is definitely an attraction that will blow your mind away. The attractive path was formerly a railroad bridge constructed over the wide Hudson River in the 1990s, however, it was later transformed and given a whole new purpose. Take awesome photos with friends and family on the bridge and enjoy the wonderful view.
Aside from great places and scintillating attractions, Poughkeepsie is also known to have invested well in the education sector with amazing colleges and schools. Take a trip to Vassar College which is just located along Raymond Avenue in Poughkeepsie. The beautiful college offers bachelor’s degrees in over 50 majors and it’s flexible in its curriculum.
