Franklin D. Roosevelt, Hyde Park’s most notable resident, once stated “all that is within me cries out to go back to my home on the Hudson River.” Visit the Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site, the FDR Presidential Library and Museum and the Eleanor Roosevelt National Historic Site to get a glimpse into the life of America’s only 4-term President and his First Lady. Down the road, experience Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site, a stunning estate that’s one of the last few surviving monuments to English country life. Don’t miss a visit to The Culinary Institute of America – the world’s premier culinary college. Register for a culinary class or take a tour of the campus. Make a reservation at any of the college’s five award-winning, student-run restaurants. Savor a sample of beer, brewed on-site at Black Snake Brewing Company or sample heritage wines at Milea Estate Vineyard.
