Last March, at the Philadelphia Travel and Adventure Show, I met a rep from the Dutchess County tourism board. I have family in the Poughkeepsie area, and visit up there twice a year – for New Year’s Eve, and to run the Dutchess County Classic in the fall. We got to talking, about that race, and funny enough the woman I met at the travel show was also involved in organizing the race! Funny how life connects like that.

One of my favorite things about traveling, writing and blogging is the connections made with others. So, I was so excited when the Dutchess County tourism board invited little man and I to come up for a night (they wanted us to stay longer – but we are so busy in the spring, isn’t everyone?) and explore some of the great activities Dutchess County has to offer. SPOILER ALERT: We LITERALLY had the best time on this trip, and I am so excited to share all the great things to do in Dutchess County with kids. This is a long weekend getaway you want to plan right now!
