Historic Homes in all their Christmas Finery

Christmas Time  is a wonderful time to visit the historic homes along the Hudson River and see how beautiful they look decorated for the holidays.  The History of the Hudson Valley is so interesting, and there is so much to be learned thru a tour of one of the many historic homes in the area.  The views of the Hudson River are unspoiled and often there are trails to walk or cross country ski and in some cases sledding.  I have only listed 3 here but see the I love NY website for a list of others.
