It's like walking into the home and kitchen of the couple who run it. Authentic fresh Vietnamese dishes. A real treat in a little hole in the wall. A real price performer too! In business for over two decades and a house favorite. Open for lunch and dinner. Closes in between meal services, so best to confirm opening times for your party. No reservations needed. Take out available.

Really good Shrimp and String Bean, as well as the hot and sour soup with tofu. Dumplings not so great though. Best for take out rather than eat in.

It's a little bit of everything, food, deli, lunch, bakery. But the best part of it is the ride through the gorgeous farm scenery and pastoral views to get there, and then, the treasure at the end of the rainbow, which this spot embodies in demonstrating exactly how farm to table SHOULD work. A real gem. And Delicious.

During some seasons, they play discount movies, but mostly they feature musical productions - ballet, symphony, popular and other groups. Worthwhile to check and see who is in town. The theater is the oldest continually operating in NY State dating from the 1800s. After show, you can duck around the corner to the Brasserie 292 for drinks and dessert, and feel like you've stepped into a Paris cafe.

Funky little theater, but with current runs, and a real affordable spot. It's where the frugal locals go to see a move. Just next door to the Hyde Park Brewery

It's a unique rarely seen type of cantilevered bridge, and has quite a crazy history. Great views of sunsets, sunrises, and people watching as well as Hudson River Valley watching. Spectacular views.

Parks & Nature
It's like traveling to a European castle, but without the air fare. Food and drink is amazing here, the trails and vistas are incomparable and the best in the region. Often have special day and weekend programs, and their spa is top rated in America.

The sweeping views of the Hudson River as well as the sprawling lawns attract visitors from many miles away. There's also a tour you can schedule for inside the mansion. On sunny days, people bring picnic lunches and frisbees and enjoy nature. Great walking trails also around the property. Bring comfortable shoes!

The earliest existing private garden created by one of America's most celebrated landscape designers. Not only is the landscape at Bellefield historically significant, it is a testament to the efforts of a dedicated group of modern gardeners and the stewardship of the National Park Service at the Roosevelt-Vanderbilt National Historic Site. Acquired by the Federal government in 1976, Bellefield is an elegant 18th century house remodeled by famed architects McKim, Mead and White for Thomas and Sarah Newbold. It now serves as the regional headquarters for the National Park Service, which manages three sites in Hyde Park: the adjacent Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt’s Val-Kill, and the Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site.
