Kerhonkson is located some 250 miles (402 kilometers) from Washington, the national capital, and about 70 miles (113 kilometers) from Newark.
Of course, visiting just one place, no matter how popular, will only ever furnish you with a narrow window into the broader rhythms and life-ways of a region. So allow time to discover Hudson Valley's other cities, attractions and landscapes. For more places to explore, try the Loren Campbell Memorial Field and State University of New York-New Paltz in and around New Paltz, which you'll find 11 miles (18 kilometers) to the west of Kerhonkson.
Poughkeepsie, is another interesting spot to discover. It is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) from Kerhonkson and offers a number of interesting things to do and see, including Clinton House State Historic Site, Bananas Comedy Club and Springside National Historic Site. Marist College, Poughkeepsie Galleria and Locust Grove are other popular places worth investigating for those who would like to spend a while longer there.
Enjoy a little culture, learning and lore amid the great outdoors at Hudson Valley's much-loved open-air markets.
Should you hear the call of the wild, follow the lead of active locals and spend the day hiking or rock climbing.
Even the best vacation can't go on forever, so when it's time go home, you'll find the nearest major airport in Newburgh, 20 miles (32 kilometers) away.
