A Weekend Trip to the Hudson Valley

Weekend Trip to Hudson Valley:

We took the Metro North train from Grand Central Station to Poughkeepsie on Saturday morning with our two-year-old daughter. (Family Fare is $1.00 per ticket for up to 4 children aged 5 - 11.) We played almost three hours (right through nap-time!) at the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum which is a 5-minute walk from the train station and easily doable with the stroller even with some snow on the ground. The museum is $10.00/person (free for children under one or members). The Coffee Bean Café, a coffee shop with decent sandwiches and kid’s menu options, is right across from the train. We grabbed a quick lunch there after the museum.
